Ivor Burton 1930 - 2007

It is with sadness that I report the death of Ivor Burton, a Vice-President and life member of the club, on the 26th July 2007. Ivor was involved in the club for over 50 years; joining in the late 1950s, he had two sessions as club secretary; 1963-65 and 1985-88; afterwards he was club President until 1998 when he resigned due to health. He ran tournaments for many years after Harry Tharp's death in 1982.

Husband of Doreen for over 50 years, he leaves three children and five grandchildren.
