In Memory of...
One of the loveliest things about joining a bowls club, apart from the exceedingly great bowling times, is the social side - long time friendships are often formed and the support and care shown amongst fellow members is really heart-warming and touching. Here at Seaford Bowling Club, we have members who have been a part of the club for over twenty, or thirty, years and their contribution to the club in various roles has always been valued.
Whenever a member passes on, their experience, skills and knowledge of bowling is left as a legacy for newer members.
In memory of:
Arthur was a very long-standing member of Seaford Bowling Club and served for many years both as Chairman and as Club Secretary. He served for 22 years in the RAF. He was awarded a British Empire Medal by HM Queen for services to the country and spent many years working around the world in air traffic control.
On August 30th this year, (2021) Arthur's family were honoured by a Spitfire flypast along Seaford seafront - the roar of the RR Merlin engine with a Victory Roll for all to see was a fitting farewell to Arthur. Here is a video of the day as created by Simon Feist (Arthur's son.)
