More sad news I’m afraid. Arthur Howcroft, who was 96, passed away on Saturday 25th February. Arthur only joined the Club in 2000, but he quickly became a stalwart of the Wednesday Walkers.
The funeral will be on Thursday 30th March at 1pm in the Rowan Chapel at Stockport Crematorium. I understand Arthur planned every detail of his funeral well in advance and it will very much reflect his passion for walking and the mountains. He even left instructions as to what walking gear he wished to be cremated in -including his red bobble hat!
Arthur wanted his funeral to be a celebration of his life. So, after the service, do join his friends and family at the Heaton Sports Club, Green Lane, Stockport SK4 2NF for refreshments and to share your memories.
Please, let me know if you will be at the funeral and/or the get-together, so I can let the family know.
