The Late Roger Bennett - Honorary Life Member

It is with a great deal of sadness that we report to the membership the death of Honorary Life Member and good friend Roger Bennett.

Roger had been battling against a serious illness for some considerable time and he sadly passed away in the early hours of Saturday March 2010.

Many within the membership will have their own memories of Roger. Those who worked with him will know him as a straight, honest and a forthright Prison Officer whose abilities to deal with people in a straight forward way always shone through. whether it was his love of cricket or his work more recently on the Unions Conduct Committee. His commitment to see the job through will be remembered by all.

A further Circular will be issued in due course with the arrangements for the funeral, we are sure that the membership would wish sincere condolences to go to Maureen, his family and close friends.

This is a sad passing of a very good man.

Yours sincerely

Colin Moses
National Chairman

Brian Caton
General Secretary
