Dear all,
As a Club we plan to say our goodbyes to Karen Braddock on Friday 19th June.
We have arranged with the funeral director to drive slowly past the points below.
15:00 – Leave 97 Aston Road, Newton
15:05 – Passing St Mary’s School
15:08 – Passing Dukinfield Swimming baths (I Train)
15:15 – Passing St Mary’s Church (Zetland Street)
15:20 – Arriving a Dukinfield crematorium
(Please note that the times are approximate and dependent on the amount of traffic on the day)
Unfortunately, due to restrictions imposed by Dukinfield crematorium, we cannot enter the premises there. This arrangement though will allow the maximum number of people to pay their respects.
We will be joined by Orca and Oldham Swimming Club along birch lane. We will stand respecting social distancing on both sides of the road. Please come IN YOUR MARLINS SHIRTS if you can.
There will be a condolences book to sign if you wish and a basket to drop your cards or donations to WWF if desired, or flowers so I can pass them on, on your behalf to Mark.
Please forward this email to all former members you know so they may join us if they can.
Yours in swimming,
For and on behalf of all at Dukinfield Marlins ASC,
Delphine Wright,
