He will be greatly missed.

Nick came down and joined the club when he moved into the area. From the moment we first met everybody appreciated what a genuinely likeable person he was on so many levels. Even though he had not been a member for long , he made a lasting impression on everyone and we are all devastated by the news. RIP Nick
