YGCC regrets to announce the death on 13th February of former member Hugh Blenkin.
HNL Blenkin, brother of Tim, played mostly in the 1970s, in 72 matches and scored 1856 runs. His wife, Marilla, was also instrumental in breaking down the outdated practice of “no ladies or children in the pavilion until after 6.30 p.m”.
A private family funeral has been held. There will however be a Memorial Service in Ashford, Kent on Tuesday 9th April. Further details will follow.
