It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the death of one of our Vice-Presidents, John Chambers. John was a great guy and we owe him so much, without doubt he was one of the great heroes of our project to save Medway Queen. We will post further details regarding funeral arrangements etc. as soon as they become available, however we understand there is to be an inquest and that might mean that the funeral will be delayed. Please keep Noreen and their family in your thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
We understand that Noreen would like to have an idea as to how many people would hope to attend John’s funeral although the date has yet to be arranged. Mark and Pam Bathurst have volunteered to coordinate numbers for Noreen, so please let them know if you are thinking of attending. Email:- firstname.lastname@example.org Mark Bathurst
