Today we had the unwelcome task of bidding goodbye to Ian Dewhirst.
Tim and I went along as represenatives of the Society, but other members had beaten us to it. By 10:30 the Church was full to bursting, even though upstairs had been opened. This gave Keighley a chance to pay their respects to one of their favourite sons.
Thanks to the Family for giving an opportunity for complete strangers to join them at such a private time and the Church for coping with the invasion.
The Keighley News has of course covered the Funeral in detail, so for those of you who live away here is the link.
