There is no easy way to say this but we have recently received the hugely sad news that Richard Lawrence passed away (on Wed 9th October). We have only just heard the news and wanted to let you know as a lot of people have met Richard over the years and knew Richard well.
The funeral is midday on Friday 18th October at All Saints Church, Chilton. Then a gathering in the village hall next door. The family have decided on no flowers, but donations to the charity 'LifeBlood'.
Our thoughts are obviously with his family and particularly with Rachel who we also all know, through all the great work she has done for English Racketlon, manning the various control desks up and down the country with her Dad for so many years.
It goes without saying that Richard will be sadly missed by us all.
