It is with regret that we report the death of Branch Secretary William Baxendale.
Please see this THIS, sent by his son-in-law David Stephens.

David report that the Whelley Labour Club is now closed, but their Facebook page states (dated 6th May 2021) that it will be opening again on 17th May, in common with many indoor establishments. Perhaps David Aspinall or a local member may be able to confirm this.
