Allan Robinson, RIP
It's with great sadness that we have to announce that Allan Robinson - former owner of Chalkers Snooker Club, New Mills, and a stalwart member of the branch since 1997 - died today (29/7/11) at the age of just 53.
After battling cancer bravely and with immense dignity for over two years, Allan was transferred to the Ashgate Hospice near Chesterfield on Wednesday and died peacefully in the early hours of this morning.
Deepest condolences go to Allan's son, Andrew; his sister, Sue; the rest of his family and his huge number of friends in the North West, the North East and, indeed, throughout the UK and beyond. He will be sadly missed.
Funeral arrangements will be posted here as soon as they are known.
