    Sad news

    Chris.JPG

    Sadly my good friend and member of the fell running community Chris Armour lost his short battle with cancer. Chris was known by many people who he both supported and was supported by when out in the hills and mountains.
    I have been asked by his wife Andrea to let people know of his passing and make those people who wish to pay their respects aware of the details of his funeral.
    The funeral is being held at Rochdale Cemetery, Bury Rd, Rochdale OL11 4DG on Thursday 10th October at 1.40, and will be followed by a wake at Bamford Fieldhouse Cricket Club, Hollin Lane Rochdale, OL11 5PW.
    Andrea has requested that there are family flowers only but in lieu of this donations will be gratefully received to Lakeland Mountain Rescue.

    It is such sad news. Chris was a lovely guy. I did my first Old County Tops with him and had so many great days on the hills of the Ramsay Round with him.

    So sorry to read this Dave,

    I recall meeting Chris on several occasions, mostly in Wales; one such occasion might well have been your Paddy Buckley attempt?
