From The Squire of the Morris Ring - Eddie Worrall

The Morris Ring and the Morris world generally has lost a passionate and dedicated supporter. Pete was someone I was proud to work with as Treasurer during his term as Morris Ring Squire. Most importantly he was a friend. He was an inspiration to me as Squire and I will miss him. Thoughts are with Lesley at this difficult time.

Peter’s funeral will take place at 1.15pm on Friday 6th January 2017 at Grenoside Crematorium, 5 Skew Hill Lane, Grenoside, Sheffield. S35 8R

**  Family Flowers only.    Donations can be sent to
F Butcher and Son, 34 Lordens Hill, Dinnington, Sheffield. S25 2QE

Followed by a wake 
The Garrison Hotel, Hillsborough Barracks, 635 Penistone Road, Sheffield.  S6 2GB
