Phil Welsh's memorial

Saturday 31 July 2021 12:00

Members of DSS CAMRA will no-doubt be aware of Phil's sad passing. He was an active member with us for many years. His wife, Jacqui, has asked us to share details of his memorial and wake, being held in Roseville's Old Chainyard Pub...

By 31 July I am hoping for a lot more to have been vaccinated at least once and " herd immunity" will mean social distancing and masks may be optional.

However just in case a garden limit of 70 people has been placed (it means everyone is covered outside if the weather turns inclement). The inner pub where the buffet will be is also for our sole use only between 12 noon and 4pm.

Children under 10 are, I am sorry, discouraged. After all it is a pub!

I have invited some of his work colleagues who could not make it to his funeral, a few of his relatives are coming plus my brother, so all who may want to join us from CAMRA could they let either me know directly or if not able can they let Ryan know?

The Buffet includes vegetarian options so unless a specific diet is followed all should be catered for. If there is a special diet followed can the person(s) please let me know so I can try to accommodate their needs.

Phil mingled with lots from other branches due to working their festivals etc or just attending pubs in their areas so other branch members who knew Phil are welcome.

If you can make it or have any queries, let Jacqui and Ryan know at ku.gro.armac.yeldud@yraterces / ku.gro.armac.yeldud@riahc.
