Sad news…Ken Bates, who joined Westwood Badminton Club in 1995, and so one of our oldest members (in more ways than one!) has decided to move to Essex…yes I did say Essex! Apparently he’s been persuaded by the charms of a lady called Mary. Ken, no doubt you’ll soon be putting speakers in your car worth more than the actual value of the car itself, intending to impress the yoofs on your regular trips to Lakeside shopping centre, or perhaps embracing the delights of Clacton beach. And so we bid farewell to Ken, and wish him and Mary all the very best for the future.
