R.I.P. Group Captain (retired) Eric Cropper

Former member Eric Cropper has died peacefully at home in Kirkby Malzeard, his devoted daughter Jeni by his side. He was 93 years old.

Longer standing members of RWG will always remember Eric with great affection for the wit and wisdom he brought to our meetings. A gifted writer himself, he was a fountain of knowledge on many subjects.

Eric’s funeral will take place at 11.40 on 19th April at Stonefall Cemetery, Harrogate. Donations to the RAF Benevolent Fund.

Our friendly group meets once a fortnight in the Old Deanery on Minstergate, opposite Ripon Cathedral and is always open to new members from the Ripon area and beyond. Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
