16th February 2019

Dear <<First Name>>,

It is with deep regret that the Club has to advise of the passing, after a long illness, of long-standing FP member Mr Norman Garden on Sunday 10th February at the age of 71.

His good friend Peter Robertson wrote:

"Once met, never forgotten, Norman's considerable frame was entirely in keeping with his personality, and his commanding presence enriched all FP events that he attended.

He was a staunch supporter of the FP Club, Club Centre, and the Rugby and Golf sections all benefited from his attendance and contributions throughout the years.

In the last four years he approached his unfortunate medical prognosis with the same spirit of character, determination and humour that he had exuded for all of his life.

He will, indeed, be fondly remembered by all who had the pleasure and privilege of knowing this fine fellow.

Our heartfelt condolences go to his beloved wife Moira, and his children Andrew and Lesley."

The funeral is at Baldarroch, Crathes, on Wednesday 20th February at 11.30am.

Aberdeen Grammar Rugby are on the road today travelling to Falkirk for the National League Cup quarter-final tie against Falkirk. The 2nd XV also have a long trip to meet Ross Sutherland at Invergordon. Good luck to both teams today.

The FP Club and Club Centre AGM's will be held on Monday 25th March. Included in this newsletter is a message from your Chairman and all members are strongly encouraged to attend.

Please note that Elson will be away for the next 10 days on family business in Portugal and so we have reduced opening times from Monday 18th to Monday 25th February. Full details below - please check that we are open if you are coming in for a drink.

A Message from the Chairman

"The Annual General Meeting of the Aberdeen Grammar FP Club will be held on Monday 25th March at 7.00pm in the Club Centre. Please note the earlier than previously intimated start time. The Annual General Meeting of the Club Centre will be at approximately 8.30pm or earlier, upon completion of the FP Club AGM.

In these difficult times it is important that all members retain their interest in the club and this is best shown through attendance at these meetings. This is the forum whereby current issues and concerns can be aired and discussed and opinions relayed to club officials. As such I would encourage all members to attend these meetings."
