John Duncan’s funeral service today

A reminder that John Duncan’s funeral service takes place today. Prior to the service, people will have the opportunity to pay respect along the route the cortege will take to the Crooked Spire Church.

The cortege will start their procession at 1pm from Matlock. Their first stop will be at St Margaret’s Drive, the site of the old Saltergate ground. Estimated time of arrival will be 1.20pm. Anyone wishing to congregate here are asked to be respectful of local residents.

The cortege will then proceed to the Technique Stadium, and will arrive there at approximately 1.30pm. Here the cortege will circle the ground before heading to the Crooked Spire Church.

Those wishing to attend the service at 2pm at The Crooked Spire Church are welcome, but the family ask that seating is allocated to friends and family first.

Following the service, an invitation-only reception is being held at CFC.
