It is with great sadness that we have been informed today that Eric Unsworth, a great friend and supporter to this team, has recently passed away.
Eric was known to many of our longer serving members as the organiser of the annual Remembrance Sunday Service at the Bomber Memorial at Lead Mines Valley, Anglezarke.
Indeed we understand that Eric was the driving force behind re-establishing this now very well attended annual service.
Eric, a member of the West Lancashire Long Distance Walkers Association, was known to us as a kindly gentleman, who sadly through ill health could no longer appear in recent years at the Bomber Memorial Service he so dearly liked to attend, to honour the young airmen who died in the Wellington Bomber crash.
We would like to pass on our condolences to his daughter Paula Cocker, his family, friends and colleagues in West Lancashire LDWA, plus those in Chorley Ramblers who also knew him.
We will ensure a prayer is said to honour him at this years Remembrance Service at the Bomber Memorial.
