My name is Chris and I am Grandson of the late Basil Collins.
Thank you so much for your kind words in the Abingdon & District Newsletter, it means a lot to the family to see his dedication to the sport still recognised and appreciated.
I’m not sure whether or not there are members who still remember Basil as an active member or not given the 30 years since his committee role, but for anyone who is interested in paying their respects to Basil his funeral service will be held: Friday September 3rd, 11am at South Oxfordshire Crematorium and Memorial Park, Garford, OX13 5PA.
Otherwise the family is asking for Family Flowers only or donations to Thames Valley Air Ambulance, a charity Basil was fond of.
If any are interested in paying their respects to Basil, could you please direct them my way for catering purposes.
Again, thank you so much for your kind words remembering Basil. His love for Aunt Sally never diminished and it is great to see the community remembering him still too.
