We have received sad news today that life member Clifford Bennett passed away last night, and we express our sympathy to all his family and friends.
Clifford was a committee member and watcher from at least the early 1980’s, some of our older members may well remember having their books checked by him at Coppice Pond or Harden Dam.
He was elected as Chairman at the 1987 AGM (replacing current President Bruce Howard), and retired from his post and committee at the 1991 AGM where he was awarded life membership.
After retirement from club duties, Clifford remained in touch with the club for many years sending a donation and letter (which was always read to committee) on receipt of his year book.
Clifford’s funeral will be at Oakworth Crematorium this Monday (27th November) at 12:15, his family are keen to welcome all anglers who remember him to this service, and also to Cullingworth Conservative Club where friends and relatives will gather following the ceremony.
