In remembrance of Bob Platt
With great sadness we have to report that Bob Platt has died in Southport hospital after a short illness.
Bob was a longstanding member of Formy Chess Club playing for the first team over many years and also was Treasurer for some time. Prior to Formby he had been a member of Waterloo and the Royal.
His connection with MCA chess went back well over 50 years.
The funeral will take place at Thornton Crematorium on Wednesday 19th April at 3:20pm.
After Bob's funeral at Thornton Crematorium there will be a gathering at the Cross House Pub Cross Green Formby where there is ample parking on site from approx 4-00 p.m. A buffet will be provided and Mrs Platt would like some idea of numbers for catering purposes.
All of you who will wish to go to the Cross House, and all are welcome, please contact me by e-mail, or on 01704 877854 or 07806 778 788 by Monday night.
(President of the MCA)
