Fosseway Bowls Club Say Farewell to Alan Rowe

In bright sunshine on Friday 29th May forty members of the Fosseway bowls club wearing their club colours lined the roadside of Fosse Way to say farewell to Alan Rowe. Great care was taken to respect the two metre social distancing.
As the cortège passed by the members clapped and it was a very moving moment when the cortège actually stopped to acknowledge the applause.
Alan had been a member of Fosseway for over 21 years but because of the restrictions as to how many were able to attend the funeral at Gilrose it was the club’s way of marking their respect for a long standing member. Six members were actually permitted to attend.
The club send their condolences to his wife Anne and her family and look forward to welcoming her back.
