Gordon Whitmore’s Celebration of Life Service was held at Bawdeswell Church at 2pm on Friday 13 August 2021, followed by a gathering at Bawdeswell Village Hall with a sumptuous buffet and glasses of champagne.

Gordon passed away suddenly in South Africa on 25 February 2020 and, due to the pandemic, it has taken his dear wife Ruth this long to arrange such a service.  It was a beautiful service with a choir and many tributes paid by members of Gordon’s family.

Gordon was also an extremely valued member of Bintree Bowls Club.  The club lost it’s bowling green in Bintree in 2008 and Gordon played an invaluable part in helping to keep the club going by playing at Bawdeswell bowling green.  He was instrumental in setting out a plan for raising funds for the re-constructed club.  He started the 100 club and encouraged the raising of funds through raffles, social events, quiz nights etc.  At the first meeting of the new club committee, Gordon was elected President and remained in this role until his passing.

Gordon is forever missed !!!
