Vice President Leaves The Crease


Past President Stuart Whitehead informed us yesterday of the passing of Bill.

"Sorry to report that Bill Burt one of our Vice Presidents passed away yesterday age 94, he passed away in his sleep so did not suffer.

Not many new Bill As he only visited our club on Presidents’ Day when I was in that role, he lived in north London, but not very mobile in recent years.

He was made a VP because he produced the HCC fixture card for over 20 years as he was in the stationery business, more importantly he never charged the Club, which must have mounted up to thousands of pounds over that period.

It was he and I that started up the booklet design for the fixture card previously just a folded card.

A very generous man and made several donations to the Club over the years, he was proud to have been made a VP."

Thanks to Stuart for passing on the sad news and we pay tribute to one of the people who made the club what it is today.
