Sheila Bruckshaw R.I.P. 15th February 2021

It is with very great regret and sadness to report that we lost our well loved member Sheila Bruckshaw on 15th February 2021.
Sheila has been a member of Bury Croquet Club for a very very long time and everyone was in awe of her resiliance and longevity, playing croquet and driving at the grand age of 96!! She was an excellent player winning many trophies over the years and the 'Thursday Afternoon Golf Practice Group' will miss her dearly.
We will also miss her hard work helping out on start of season clean-up days at both sites!!

From the obituary in the Bolton Evening News: Sheila was a much loved aunt and friend to many. She lived all her life in Bolton attending Bolton School and after training in physical education at Liverpool, she taught at Chorley Grammer School.

Sheila's funeral will take place on Monday 8th March by invitation only.
Family flowers only, donations may be made in memory of Sheila for BOLTON HOSPICE or THE WOODLAND TRUST c/o The Livesey Funeral Service, The Private Chapel, Church St, Horwich, Bolton, BL6 7BR 01204 696311
