The family of Nigel Banwell have written to thank the North Midlands rugby family for their condolences and support following his sudden death last month.
Nigel, the North Midlands President, collapsed and died at his beloved club, Upton on Severn, while putting out the flags ahead of their local derby against Redditch.
A Memorial Service for Nigel took place in Malvern on February 10 with a huge turnout of mourners, many from North Midlands clubs.
The note from Jane Banwell, Nigel’s widow, reads: “Your expressions of sympathy gave great comfort to Oliver, Ruth and me following the sudden loss of Nigel.
Thank you all for thinking of us.
