Sad News + Funeral Arrangements

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our long-serving league official, President and friend George Williams.

He had struggled health-wise over the last few months but his family were grateful to be with him over Christmas and for his 84th birthday on 1 Jan.

George was such a major part of badminton locally and regionally that to say he will be sorely missed is a complete understatement. (Please click here to read more about George’s considerable involvement and contribution to the game over the years). Our thoughts are with Helen and the family at this time.

George’s funeral will be held at 12 noon on Wednesday 29th January at Blacon Crematorium. Family flowers only but donations in George’s memory will be given to Dorin Park School in Chester (a specialist school that George fundraised for by running summer badminton tournaments over many years).

After the service the family will be holding a celebration of George’s life at The Little Owl (Countess Way, CH1 4DA) and would love to share this occasion with as many of you as possible so they can share memories of George as a husband, father, grandad, badminton player and friend.
