Farewell to Rev. John Davis

The Club notes with sadness the passing of Reverend John Davis, long term member and supporter of Bungay Cherry Tree AC, who died after a short illness on November 8th 2018.

John lived at the once Cherry Tree pub in Bungay where Bungay Cherry Tree AC was started and which for many years was the headquarters of the club.

Until very recently John continued to offer the use of his home for committee meetings.

It is perhaps a little sad that after some 71 years the club’s connection with it’s origins is no more.

The club also notes the passing, on November 14th 2018, of the renowned angler, broadcaster and author John Wilson MBE who did so much to promote angling as a sport, particularly in East Anglia.
