Celebration of life: John ‘Gypsy’ Davidson – Saturday 28th August

John’s family and Blaydon RFC are hosting a celebration of Gypsy’s life, at the club from 2pm on Saturday 28th August.


It would be great to see current & former players, coaches, supporters, friends and anyone he greeted as you entered our bar, turn out to share this day.

Don’t think anyone will ever forget the turn out on the day of his last drive through Blaydon RFC.

Message from his family:

You can arrive anytime that suits you from 2:00pm onwards.

There will be a number of rugby games on; with; 1s, 2s and Bricks all having games.

At around 4:30 we are playing an old video of the famous Sugar Plum Fairies routine.

We aren’t fundraising as such, but one thing John really hated was dropped litter and fly tipping. We thought as a little nod to this we would have a few collection tins dotted about for Keep Britain Tidy. We feel he would have seen the funny side in that.

It’s just a come and go as you please fun day to remember this lovely man who brightened so many people’s lives, look forward to seeing you if you can make it.
