Debbie Senior has asked me to send out this communiqué.

Barrie Horne, our erstwhile President, Club Captain and Honorary Life Member has been diagnosed with Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s and as a result of these two crippling illnesses, Barrie has sadly had to say goodbye to bowling.

If it were not for the current situation, I would suggest we get together at the club and have a drink with Barrie while we still can but sadly that is not the case. There is nothing Barrie would like more than to be at RBC with a room full of people to talk with.

However, you can still speak to Barrie and Barbara but it may a little difficult at times due to his condition. 

I personally will miss Barrie and his lovely partner Barbara and wish them well at this time.

It is with great sadness that I have to report that Brian Harrington's partner, Maureen passed away last Saturday.

Brian and Maureen were together for nigh on ten years and had a very happy relationship during their time together.

Although Maureen was not a regular visitor to the club she will be fondly remembered by those who met and new her.

Our thoughts and our deep condolences go out to Brian and Maureens family, at this most difficult of times.
