Very sad news – Mike Cross died 12th September 2016

After suffering from cancer for a long time Mike Cross passed away this morning.

Mike was a tireless worker for the LVRC and cycling in general. He will be remembered for his appearances at the Pedal Club, his meticulous work behind the scenes, and that irrepressible “Geordie” sense of humour.

The arrangements for his funeral are as follows:

Monday 26th September, 12.20pm at Worthing Crematorium (http://www.worthingcrem.co.uk/) followed by some drinks and food back at Mike’s favourite pub, The Malt Shovel in Horsham (http://www.maltshovelpub.com/) between 2pm and 5pm.


If anyone wants accommodation details, here are some local hotels that may be able to offer rooms…

With regard to flowers/donations etc, Mike’s family has decided to have one floral tribute only from the family, and are suggesting that anyone who wishes to, can make a donation to a charity of their own choice, in Mike’s name – his wife has said that many people have charities that they support or who have been of help or comfort to them in the past, and this will allow them to thank them in their own way.

If you could let me know if you are going to attend and go to The Malt Shovel afterwards by Thursday I will let his family know so that they can make the arrangements with the pub.

Kind regards,

Chalky
