Anchor Folk In Memorium :- 

Richard Harper-White (“Dick”)  passed away  26/4/11 at St. Peters Hospital where he was battling with lung disease.. Up until two years ago, Dick sat on the “door” at the club with his wife Jean.  To those that knew him, he was a  larger than life character who helped Maureen and I start the club by doing the art work for the signs that he also made up and in particular the candlesticks . He will be sorely missed. The Funeral for Dick was held at the Woking Crematorium on Thursday  12th May at 2:45 PM. and after at the Addlestone Community Centre.

Tony Horncastle:-Our dear friend , who played regularly at the club from February to August 2007, passed away on 12th February  2008 after a long battle with cancer. Our condolences go to his wife Susan and his friends and family. Such a talent will be missed greatly. 2
