Memorial Bench for Dave Walker

Memorial Bench for Dave Walker

Dave's family have now been asked about this idea and they really like it. Additionally, they would love to thank everyone in person once the club sessions are back up and running, for saying goodbye to Dave on the morning of his funeral.

Unfortunately Rowlands Castle Parish Council don't allow memorial benches on the Green but they do offer the option to maintain a bench with a memorial inscription (2 plaques). The total cost of this is £250 which pays for the inscription and goes towards a fund set-aside to maintain the benches in the future.

The inscription I'm leaning towards is split into 2 halves (but please let me know if you want something else added/changed):

In memory of Dave Walker 1951 - 2021
A loving father and a true friend to many

From all at Victory Athletic Club

The bench has been identified as the one right next to the bus shelter - many of us have met here for years on a Sunday morning at 0800 and felt this would be the most suitable option.

If you would like to donate to this, please could you pay donations to me using the bank details in the email sent to all club members.

If there are any excess funds, I will speak to the committee about the possibility of purchasing a trophy for a club event.
