Graeme Gittings It with sadness that we report the death of an old established member of the Senior Section, Graeme Gittings. Most probably only remembered by the older members of the section. Unbeknown to me Graeme had moved to Hull to be closer to his daughter. Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time. The funeral will held on 30th August at 1:30 pm at Haltemprice Crematorium, Main Street, Hull HU10 6NS
Ron Yardley

Our thoughts are with his wife Bridget and the family at this sad time. The funeral will be held at the Peterborough Crematorium on Friday the 31st August at 2:30 pm.
