Colin Martin

 

Sue has asked me to let those of you who knew Colin, that he passed away on Monday 5t February at Cranhill Nursing Home after a long illness.
Colin stepped in as chairman of  BHRA on a temporary basis, when we were on the verge of folding due to lack of volunteers for the committee and stayed for 5 years. He stepped down in 2015 due to ill health. He and Sue West his partner lived in Sydney Wharf for many years and worked hard to support BHRA and attended all our events, despite his health problems. He was full of life, took a keen interest in several local community projects and was a well known and liked member of the Bathwick hill community as well as a staunch supporter of Bath Rugby.
Colin’s funeral is at Haycombe Crematorium on Monday 26 Feb at 12.15, and afterwards at The Globe.  It will be a strictly non-religious ceremony, with no hymn singing, according to his wishes.
No flowers thank you, but donations if wished to The Kennet & Avon Canal Trust c/o Funeral Directors G Mannings.
Sue has said it would give her great pleasure and comfort if Colin’s old friends from Bathwick Hill can join her on February 26th.
