OBITUARY – GRANVILLE LEACH

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing, a few days ago, of
our dear friend Granville Leach after a long battle with ill health over the last few
years.
Granville was a member of Anchor Ramblers for many years. He was a great “B”
walker and enjoyed walks with the club home and abroad.
Granville was a lover of sporting activities playing football, squash, walking and
cycling amongst many pastimes throughout his life.
He was full of fun and laughter and always willing to recognise humour and wit. I
remember a particular occasion at Patterdale when Barbara Kennedy had
provided Granville with a Lion suit for our fancy dress occasion. Sharing a room
for the weekend, we spent he best part of 2 hours trying to get him into his
costume. I was aching with laughter at his antics! Even when he’d finished
dressing, we still had bits of costume left over! Always a good sport he was a
loved and respected member of the club.
May he rest in peace.
Funeral Arrangements
Service at St Elizabeth’s Church, Aspull at 2.0 p.m. on Thursday 6 th October
Followed by committal at Overdale Crematorium Bolton at 3.15 p.m.
