A sad farewell at HPPCC

Dear Paddler
It is with great sadness that the club learnt today that one of our club members, George Oliver passed away this morning.
George was a founder member of HPPCC and a life member of the club and had devoted his life to the coaching of paddlers. He was an inspiration to all those who knew him or had contact with him. Many of our club members were taught to paddle by George and he inspired a generation of coaches.
George was primarily a marathon paddler and was still a very active member of Notts Kayak Club.
Our thoughts are with his family and all of those who will mourn his passing.
Kind Regards Dawn
