I’m very sad to learn that Eric Wetherell, honorary Vice President of our District, passed away Monday 7th March, aged 89.

Eric had been a keen supporter of our District for many years, and indeed is a former District Chairman, attending District events, fundraisers, and Castle Capers Gang shows, Always on hand to offer advice if needed, in a very unassuming way. He was one of life’s real gentlemen.  I, and others will miss his cheery smile and chats.

There is a service of Remembrance at St Andrews Church, Westlands, Newcastle, 245pm,  Monday 28th March.

Eric’s family have requested a Scout presence, Scout uniform to be worn if possible,  and final arrangements will be notified shortly. (A private family service at Bradwell Crematorium precedes the church service)

Undertakers Rowland & Foulkes, Newcastle.
