25 Mar 2014** PETER HAWKYARD**

Dear Snooker & Billiards colleagues:
For those who are not already aware, it is with the deepest regret that I have to inform you that Peter Hawkyard passed away sometime last Saturday after spending several weeks in Pinderfields Hospital.
Apologies for the delay in posting this message, but I was only made aware last night after a week end away, and the decision was taken to hold off any announcement to respect Peter's family in mourning and until more facts could be established.
However, after being informed that messages have already been posted on Facebook, we thought it appropriate to send this message now, from the Organisation Peter served so very well over the years.

Peter's funeral will take place on Friday 4th April at Pontefract Crematorium starting at 10-40am.

I shall post further news if and when we receive it and I shall also put together and circulate a full tribute on behalf of the LBSO in time for the funeral.
I am sure you will all agree, Peter will be missed in many respects and all our sympathies are with his family at present times.
LBSO COMMITTEE
