GRAHAM MAXWELL (28/12/1952-18/3/2018)

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Graham Maxwell on Sunday 18th March 2018 after a short illness. Graham had been diagnosed with Cancer just eight weeks prior to his death. He gave so much of his time and himself to supporting local motor sport clubs at grass roots level as an organiser and marshal. In 1997 he won the Knutsfords Scatter championship in a 4x4 Sierra as Navigator and was the driving force in setting up the Tour of Cheshire. Graham enjoyed to compete in autotests and autosolos. In recent years he was a regular Clerk of Course on the CSMA Lymm events. In the last 18 months he organised factory tours for club members; to Prodrive, M –Sport, Bentley and Brigg Automotive Company as well as running a six car stand at the Footman James Classic Car Show last September. Our thoughts go out to his wife Rita and all the family at this sad time.

Funeral will be held on Tuesday 27th March at 4pm, at the Northwich Crematorium, Shurlach Lane, Davenham, Cheshire CW9 8RP - if you are wearing a tie please make it jolly! Family flowers only please, Donations for Kidney Cancer UK

There will be an afterparty at Abbeywood, Chester Road, Delamere, Cheshire CW8 2HS - Tea/coffee/cake/scones on arrival, a hot buffet will also be served approx 6pm. We would really like this to be an occasion which Graham would call a 'good do'. There will be an opportunity to share photos of Graham and make notes of your best memories of him, which we would later like to create into a book. Please let us know if you’ll be joining us so that we have an idea of numbers. Contact Fiona Van-Hay
