Tony Ashley - very sad news

It is with great sadness that Anker Morris Men have announced the death of Tony Ashley who has been a leading light in the Morris world for many many years and, in the words of so many that knew him, was just a lovely man.

Tony was very active in the Midlands area with Anker Morris,serving as an Area Rep for many years, as well as the Hinckley Bullockers and the One Day Wonders, and was latterly a founding member of Knightlow Morris Men. He was long-time tutor on the Jigs Weekend. His passing has come as a heavy loss to those of us who were privileged to know him.

Full details of funeral arrangements will be published at a later date, but at this time the officers of the Morris Ring wish to express our profound condolences to his family and friends.
