It is with great sadness that we let you know that Claire Hyde, 91 years old, died peacefully in her sleep this morning.

Her son Nicky has asked that after the pandemic emergency is over that the family would like to hold a memorial service in Middleton and spend some time at the Club.

Claire did a lot of work in the tearoom when Jimmy played cricket and she also helped out whenever she could.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the family at this sad time.
