RIP John Cheetham

It is with regret that we inform members John Cheetham has passed away at the age of 93, after battling cancer for a long time.

John was linked to the club through Chatham Technical School for Boys as it was at that time, from around 1953 until his retirement. John looked after the new entrants when the school became open to 11 year olds, coached tennis and taught many of our former members.

His funeral is on Monday 26 February 1415 at the Medway Crematorium, followed by a gathering at Chatham Bowls Club, Palmerston Road. Attendees are asked to wear bright colours, no flowers please, and donations to The Wisdom Hospice via Co-op Funeral Care, Walderslade.

Many thanks Jon Rye (Co-Chairman)
