Sad news – Ron Bailey

Ron Bailey, one of the Club’s most active and long-standing members, died on 9th May, aged 101, just 3 days after his birthday. The funeral service will be held at 3.00pm on Tuesday 6th June at the West Suffolk Crematorium at Westley. His family have asked us to let old friends know that they will be very welcome to attend the service. The Rambling Club played a large part in Ron’s life for many years and he contributed enormously. Many members will have been on one of his meticulously researched London trips, not to speak of a fantastic range of local walks, which he continued to lead well into his 90s. He will be sorely missed.
