Obituary

Alan Bailey

The Clerk is saddened to inform the Club of the passing of Alan Bailey, who died peacefully today (Friday, 28 June), surrounded by his family.
I am in no doubt that without Alan’s efforts the Club would not be what it is today and may not even have survived without his extensive stewardship as Clerk.
I was privileged to serve him as Master and continued to learn from him until the end.
RIP.

The funeral was on Tuesday 16 July at St Stephen's Church, Canterbury
Alan's wishes were for his funeral to have minimal environmental impact and for his interment to be at a green burial site.

Donations in Alan's memory may be made to
