The funeral for Spartan Life Member Maureen Preedy will be held on Friday 1st May at 1000hrs and all Spartans have been invited to pay their respects.

Due to the horrendous COVID-19 virus that currently encapsulates the world however, one which ultimately claimed Maureen’s life far too soon, restrictions still exist on the maximum number of attendees who are allowed to in person celebrate her life.
