Peter Roberts’ funeral arrangements update

Carole Smithies writes:

Very sad to report that our Honorary Member Peter Roberts died on 31st December 2019.  Peter was a member of the Club for over 50 years and he was warden of Beudy Mawr from 1972 to 1994.

I now have the full details of Peter Roberts’ funeral and memorial get-together. 

His funeral will take place at Peel Green Cemetery & Crematorium, 716 Liverpool Road, Manchester M30 7LW [Junction 11 off M60] next Friday, 17 January, at 2 20pm.  Afterwards, since there are no family arrangements, we plan to meet at the Swinging Bridge Hotel, 18-20 Trafford Boulevard, Manchester M41 7JE together with members of Peter’s other Club, Tyn Llwyn Isaf.  The hotel is a short drive from the crematorium, click here to see attached map, and close to where Peter worked at Trafford Park.  We will be able to drink to Peter’s memory there and if needs be, purchase a bite to eat before travelling home.

The solicitors who are arranging the funeral, have asked me to let them know how many people will be there.  So please, if you haven’t already done so, let Carole know if you will be at the funeral and/or the get-together. Her contact details are in the Handbook

  1. I remember being in Beudy, with son Nick, when Peter was plastering the long (roadside) wall of the drying room. He had us mixing plaster for him. We couldn’t mix it fast enough! A real craftsman.
