Dennis Burtenshaw. R.I.P.

Very sad news received today that Dennis  Burtenshaw passed away at the weekend.
A stroke prevented him bowling for the last few years but for many years before that, he was a dedicated member of Cambridge Park playing in roll ups, friendlies, TV/R&B leagues, tours, social events etc.

Not only that, but behind the scenes, he quietly got on and did other maintenance and bits and bobs for the Club, never wanting to make a fuss and taking his committee duties seriously and supported the Club in everything.

Dennis was a quiet, gentle chap but with a lovely sense of humour.

We send our deepest condolences to Brenda, his wife, and the rest of his family.
The funeral will be at Hanworth Crematorium on Thursday 14th September at 11:00 then afterwards at Twickenham British Legion.

    Very sad news of Dennis. Everything you’ve said Dawn was correct – a true gentleman and great supporter of the Club. One of the older members who did so much to make Cambridge Park what it is today! Sadly I won’t be able to attend Funeral as will be away.

    I did not know Dennis as a bowler but I knew a student of that name at St Mary’s College many years ago. I send my condolences, whether or not it is the same person.
