We now have a date and time for the funeral. Wednesday 14th October @11:15am at Saltwell crematorium.
At this time, as you’ll all be aware funerals are covered by COVID19 restrictions, otherwise, as shown by the responses to previous announcements, the amount of people wanting to show respect is amazing and to quote them; “of great pride to his family”
There is an opportunity, in a way available during this time to be able to ‘pay one’s last respect’ to Gypsy and to show his family just what Gypsy meant to everyone. The funeral cars will be passing through the grounds of Blaydon RFC @10:40am and it would be great to see people, spread around the large grounds, keeping the appropriate social distancing from other households as the vehicles drive through.
