From its humble beginnings and over many years, Jim worked tirelessly to improve club facilities and access for members. A successful businessman, Jim often remarked that if he wasn't so busy with organising the smooth running of the club, he could easily run another company. He will be really missed. We extend our deepest sympathy to his family at this very sad time.

Funeral Service is to take place at St. Martins Church, Talke on Tuesday December 2nd 2014 at 2.15pm followed by Cremation at Bradwell Crematorium.

Osborn Spence, Secretary, Leek Shooting Centre.'
