MANOR PARK RFC - JAMIE STYLES
Following the tragic death of one of our players, Jamie Styles who was killed in a motorcycle accident on Tuesday 21st Feb,we have set up a fund to help Jamie’s young family move into the house they had just completed on. The house is in need of some modernisation and we are organising a ‘DIY SOS’ kind of event.
We have already had an overwhelming response from the local clubs so could you please convey our heartfelt thanks to all of the clubs who have observed a minutes silence, already donated or committed to help so far.
For more information how the wider Warwickshire community can help please visit our website or contact Nigel Ellis on 07801 723683 or email@example.com

Jamie’s funeral is being held on Friday, March 17 at 2.15pm at the Heart of England crematorium in Eastboro Way. Afterwards, people will gather at the Griff and Coton club in Heath End Road.
Once again many thanks, it is incredibly humbling to be part of such a wonderful community.
Kind regards Nick Bishop,Chairman,

Leamington RFC are sad to report the death of Brian Griffin, one of our long serving members. Brian died suddenly on 17 February, just short of his 89th birthday. Brian made his debut for the club in 1949 and had been an active member ever since. In his playing days he was a regular the second-row for the first team. On retirement from playing he managed the Colts and held senior positions in the club including, Rugby Chairman, Chairman and President. In recent years he looked after the ground and clubhouse and there was nothing he didn't know about how things worked. He opened the club every weekday morning and carried out on-going repairs and improvements with his team of helpers. He was on duty on 17 February as usual, prior to passing away later in the day. He will have be known to many members of other clubs and will be greatly missed.
The funeral will be at Oakley Woods Crematorium (North Chapel) on Wednesday 22 March at 12.15 and afterwards at Leamington Rugby Club.
The new secretary of Warwickshire Colts RFU,having been asked to step into the shoes of Steve Sutherland is Damian Dixon, 264 Cubbington Road,Leamington Spa, CV32 7AX. Contact 07758 320664, firstname.lastname@example.org
