Denis Lane RIP

It is with sadness that we report that Denis Lane (Blackpool Chess Club) passed away last week. Denis was 98. Denis was also a keen supporter of chess within the Blackpool & Flyde area, serving as Chairperson and Secretary of the league.

John Cooper has advised that Denis's funeral will take place at 11 am on Tuesday 10th March at Carleton Crematorium followed by a reception at the Cafe in Stanley Park. All are welcome but, if anyone wishes to come to the reception, could they please let John know as Denis's daughter, Janet, would like to have an idea of numbers for catering purposes. Janet's surname is Davenport and her address is "The Rest", Little Tongues Lane, Preesall, Lancs, FY6 0PD in case you wish to send a card or letter.

Donations will be split between Trinity Hospice, the Chess League and a drama group which Denis supported.
