Ray Chorley

It is with sadness that I announce the passing of Ray Chorley last Friday.

He had a stroke last September and had been in a home in Rainford.

Ray was a stalwart member of the Colliers Arms quiz team for many years and was often joined by his sons and daughter.

He was team secretary until last season.
