It is with great sadness we have to report that Simon Greenwood, our club President, died on Monday.
Simon has been a prominent character in orienteering for a period longer than most of us in Saxons have been taking part. He has been active in Saxons as an enthusiastic competitor, a planner of major events (including the Harvester Relays at Eridge in 2010 and the Peter Palmer Junior relays in 2019), vice Chairman of the club and, since 2009, as our President. He also served orienteering regionally, being Chairman of SEOA for over 20 years. All those members who knew him will remember his friendly and enthusiastic presence at orienteering events.
He will be greatly missed.
Further reminiscces of Simon's years with Saxons will follow shortly.
The family will hold a small private cremation service for Simon and there will be a memorial service at Sy Mary's Church, Balcombe on 23rd March 2023 at 2.30pm followed by tea at the house. All are welcome.
