More sad news : Peter Blakeman, a long term member of the Club, passed away on the 23rd October after suffering from various illness for a long while.
Peter was in the Club for more than 30 years & contributed greatly in various roles and on the Committee – including as Chairman in the early 2000s.
He also contributed to getting his son Steve well & truly “hooked” on Land Rovers & off-roading.
Peter came along to the Major’s Memorial Trial only a month ago to see various friends & check out what we were all up to.
Our condolences go out to Peter’s family.
Funeral arrangements are as follows :
Service : Wednesday 20th November 2019, 3:00pm, at Mid Warwickshire Crematorium, North Chapel, Oakley Wood, Leamington Spa, CV33 9QP
Following on from the service at Oakley Wood, we will continue the celebration of Peter's life at The New Inn Pub, Leamington Spa, CV31 1DW, which was a firm favourite of Peter’s, from 4pm onward where a buffet will be provided.
The family have said “Please feel free to join us for both/either parts of the day where we can share wonderful memories & stories of his life”.
This is a relaxed happy event which reflects how he lived his life, so there's no formal dress code for the day.
The Family have requested that flowers should only be from immediate family, with anyone willing to donate to send a donation to the amazing people at Myton Hospices who cared for him in his final hours.
