    Gresley Old Hall Band are very saddened to report the passing away of their Band Chairman Ron Clay, Ron passed away during Tuesday Night in his sleep.
    He was 88 years of age but never really looked his age.
    Ron was the bands Chairman for 15 years and also served as Band Secretary till 1980 a position he held for 22 years.
    He was a very well respected member of the band and was neally always present at practise listening to the band.
    Ron also used to play Eb Bass for the band but gave up some years ago but came out of retirement to help with the Gresley Junior Band when they were first formed in Ocober 2002.
    Ron was also very kind and thoughtful with encoragement to the Junior Members and also Senior Members of the Gresley Bands
    He will be very greatly missed by us all at Gresley Old Hall Band.
    Thank You
    Ian Perks
    Gresley Band
    Publicity Officer
