We are sad to report that John Saxby, Secretary of Bowdon Croquet Club, passed away last Saturday (21st April) after a short illness with pancreatic cancer. John was well known throughout our Federation and always made succinct and relevant contributions to our Federation meetings. Many players will have enjoyed playing Croquet with him, especially in the Midweek League. He was very popular and will be greatly missed by his colleagues at Bowdon and many friends throughout the region. There will be a requiem mass on Wednesday 1st April at 10.00am at St Vincents Church, Bentinck Road, Altrincham. There is a request for no flowers but donations to Marie Curie Nurses would be appreciated. On behalf of everyone in the Federation, we send our condolences to John’s family at this sad and difficult time.
