Geoff Halford, long time fiddler for Leicester Morrismen and stalwart of the folk scene for the past sixty years, died in Wyggeston’s Hospital, Leicester, on Wednesday 13th December.

Geoff’s funeral will take place at Gilroes Crematorium (Groby Road, Leicester, LE3 9QG) on Friday 22nd December at 9.00am.

The family request that Leicester Morris follow the coffin into the chapel for the Humanist ceremony. There will be no flowers, but the wicker coffin will be decorated with Red Ribbon, and have Geoff’s Top Hat and Rag Coat on top.

Any and all of Geoff’s friends in the wider folk and morris are all welcome – in kit if possible. Please spread the word to those who might not access this email or facebook.

Unless you are in direct contact with Maggie please let me know if you can attend – simply for numbers.
