It is with great sadness that I have to announce the death of Denis on 31st December 2023 following his battle with illness.  I know many of you will have fond memories of Denis over his many years competing at events as a member of Southern ROC where he was a committee member and Chairman for many years, always helped by Sandra and the rest of the family.  Denis also helped to build the ALRC into what it is today during his years as a member of the Council and ten years as Chairman.  As President he continued to provide support and advice when asked for and he will be greatly missed.

Denis’s private funeral was held on the 9th February 2024 but there is a tribute link https://denisbourne.muchloved.com/  where you can leave your memories and messages for the family.  There were family flowers only at the funeral but there is a collection being made for Blood Cancer UK or St Christophers Hospice.
