As we are sure many of you will already know, it is with great regret that we inform you of the sudden passing of our dear colleague, Brian Mcfeat. He had been staying at the Sun Inn, in Windlesham where he often resided on his weeks off during the season.
The landlord and his wife, who had become very good friends with Brian over the years, discovered him in his bed on Saturday evening. It appears he had passed away in his sleep. The landlord described him as looking very peaceful. As soon as we have any more information regarding the funeral arrangements we will inform you as soon as possible. As you all know, Brian was one of the most loved characters on the tour, and will be sadly missed by all.
