Sad News

It is with great sadness that we have learned that Herb Telford died peacefully on 29 November.

We were pleased that he attended the annual prize giving on Saturday to receive the much deserved Consistency Trophy

Herb has been a big part of the club over the 40 or so years he has been a member, having taken on roles on house committee, bar, vice-Commodore, Commodore and more recently (well for the last 20+ years) official starter. He was the first club member to be bestowed with the RYA’s lifetime commitment award, clearly well deserved.

He will be fondly remembered and greatly missed by all.

Our thoughts are with Aileen, Lel, John and their families

Herb’s funeral was on Monday 10th December at St Peter’s church, Kells, Whitehaven followed by a cremation at Distington, and a funeral tea at Whitehaven golf club.

Family flowers only, donations in lieu in aid of The Salvation Army

Aileen and family wish to say a big thank you for the wonderful cards and comments received about Herb and thank everyone who attended the funeral. They greatly appreciated it all.
