It is with great sadness that we heard that Allan Burton had passed away on Sunday morning following a long and brave battle against illness. Allan was a main stay in our coaching team at Wey for 20 years, having been a member for 30 years. He will be remembered for his dedicated commitment to his various groups of paddlers. He also played a major part in providing and repairing Club boats, so his groups could race competitively.
A real Club man who will be fondly remembered and sadly missed. He would have been delighted that the Club were awarded the 2017 Sport Guildford ‘Club of the Year’ award only last week.
We will pass on any details of arrangements as soon as they are known.
