Farewell Ride for John Whitworth 18/11/08
« on: November 10, 2008, 11:42:15 AM »
Dear Friends

If you are able to ride your bike to say farewell to John on Tuesday 18th November 2008, please assemble in the car park at The Festival Inn, Trowel by 11.30 am where procession leaders will give instructions and information before riding.

If you are travelling by car, you might want to park at The Crematorium at Bramcote, then walk down to the road to wait for John and the bikes to arrive.  The service begins at 12.30.

After the service, we are going to The White Cow on Nottingham Road Ilkeston.

Shirley has requested no flowers.  A donation for the Nottingham Hospice would be appreciated and cheques/cash will be collected by the funeral directors on the day.

Shirley is OK, keeping busy with a lot to organise. 

Any queries, please phone Steve on 07762 385 194.

After being in touch with the funeral directors and Bramcote Crematorium, these are the times and arrangements we have with them for Johns funeral.
