Roger Walters

We received sad news about Roger Walters, our former Branch President, on Friday 25 February. 

Message from the Executors: Roger passed away on Friday morning in the nursing home at Market Harborough. We had been warned by the staff and his GP that his death was imminent following him contracting a number of infections. He had been deeply asleep for the last couple of days and was comfortable and not distressed.
