A Memorial Service for Walter Blanchard on 9 October is available on-line.

Past-President Walter died on 8 March, in his 90th year but before his 90th birthday - see previous news

So his wife, Anne, and family have arranged a Memorial Service in the home-town of Dorking on what would have been his 90th birthday - 9 October 2020.  The Service, at 1230 BST, can be viewed on Zoom  (Meeting ID: 946 9760 5569, Passcode: 022325). Ignore the stated time if wrong.

In light of COVID restrictions, the planned following Reception, with speakers from family and friends, had to be cancelled, but has been replaced by a comprehensive booklet of Memories, which can be downloaded as blanchard_memories.pdf

We have lost a remarkable Past-President and, to many of us, a wonderful friend. Our thoughts will be with Anne and their family on 9 October - let as many of us as possible join them through Zoom.
