Sad news I'm afraid clubmates. Club President, Charlie Richmond passed away last Tuesday, aged 89 Charlie had been a member of the club since he was a young man and will be missed by those who knew him.
He was the Club Runs Captain in the 80's/90's and cycle touring was the side of cycling he enjoyed most. Only last month Charlie had visited his daughter Elaine in Yorkshire especially to watch the Tour de Yorkshire pass her house and he proudly donned his Fenland Clarion jersey for when the riders passed.
Charlie's funeral will be at the Marholm Crematorium on Tuesday 19th June at 11.30am and afterwards at the Woodman in Thorpe Wood. The family request no flowers, but donations to the Alzheimer's and Dementia charities if you choose.
