The dreadful news has reached us that club member Rob Scales passed away on Monday. Rob served on the committee for many years and was Club Treasurer and Chairman for a number of those. His sons played cricket at the club and Liam represented England at U17 level. Friday night was karaoke night with Bob and his mass of equipment and some excellent singers. In his youth Bob was an accomplished musician himself but was far too nice a person for show business. Bob and Vanessa were always great fun on all social occasions which they enthusiastically supported. Sadly Bob's later years were marred by ill health but he still managed a day at the club with Sacha last year which must have been one of the coldest and windiest even for Whitstable. Our thoughts are with the family at this time as we salute the passing of a great clubman and all round good guy.
The service will be held at Barham Crematorium Wednesday 22nd November at 14.40 followed by a meeting in The Monument,Church Street CT5 1PH.
