Sad News…

We have been advised of the passing of past Lichfield Tabler and 41 Club  member Allan Onions OBE.

Alan was RT 250 Chairman 1965-66 and inducted past L41C Chairman (in the Shadows) John Moore. He retired as Staffordshire’s County Surveyor in 1988, being awarded the O.B.E. for his public service in the 1987 New Year’s Honours List. He was also  past Captain of Whittington Golf Club. Our thoughts are with his family.

His funeral will be held at Fradley Crematorium on  Wednesday 7th August at 1.30 p.m.
