It is with the deepest regret to report the sad news of the death of Kendra Agnew.

The funeral took place on Monday 4th April at Bradwell Crematorium Newcastle-under-Lyne and was attended by County Captain, Win Heath. She reported “Kendra wanted her funeral to be a happy occasion and we all tried very hard to grant her wishes but it was not easy. The crematorium was full to bursting and everyone who spoke selected different events that happened in her short life. Margaret Walker spoke very well as did the Captain of Wychwood Park where Kendra was a member. Kendra certainly had a full life. She was only 21 when she died. So sad as she had so much to give”
