As many will know, Neil has not been well. He underwent surgery for a brain tumour this week and unfortunately as a consequence suffered a stroke. At the moment his right side is effected and he has lost some speech. He is currently in hospital in Preston but hoping to return to Kendal when he is strong enough.
Neil has been the main stay of croquet in the Northwest for over thirty years and was the first chairman of the Federation when it was formed in the early seventies.
We all wish him well for a speedy recovery. In the interim John Beech will take over Neil’s duties as Development Officer and James Hawkins will look after coaching.
