David Leach R.I.P. 19th November 2020

It is with very great regret and sadness that we have to announce that our dear member, great friend
and fantastic groundsman at Coronation Park, David Leach, passed away in his sleep in the early hours of 19th November.
Our sincere condolences go to Margaret and her family.

David was a wonderful ambassador for our club. He ran the Bury North and Midweek Level Play Golf teams with great enthusiasm and is well known around the North West. As Groundsman at Coronation Park, his relentless hard work on the lawns have enabled us to keep playing during the difficult 2020 season.

For two years David took care of the Treasurer's role and during this year has given continued guidance and support to the current Treasurer who is extremely grateful.

David will be so sorely missed by all our members.
