Lou Allsop passed away on 13th May whilst on holiday.  He will be sadly missed by all of his family, friends, the bowling fraternity and the the people to whom he delivered newspapers, I for one miss his cheery whistle as he walked down the drive.

His wake will be at Hawkesyard Hall (not the Priory which is on the same estate) on Tuesday 18th June at 1.30pm.
