On 7th June we said a final farewell to our
President, Bob Bumstead,
who has joined the Regiment in the sky.
Bob, along with his wife Trish and son Robert, was a huge favourite in the club always with a jolly smile on his face and a friend to everyone.
Apart from being our President, he was Father Christmas for our Christmas parties for over 30 years and was always in the club for special events, and particularly on Sundays.
His roots were in the Old Town fishing community, and his ancestors are recorded as far back as 1802.
He will be hugely missed by everyone.
His funeral will be held on
Monday 4th July
11.15am at Hastings Crematorium
Afterwards at the Club
Flowers or Donations to Royal Sussex Regiment or RNLI
