Club Statement | Laura Micklethwaite

The club are sad to announce that Laura Micklethwaite, Chain Gang Member and widow of long serving President Norman Micklethwaite, passed away on Thursday afternoon at Doncaster Royal Infirmary after a period of ill health. 

Laura was an integral part of the club scene in the mid to late 60’s, 70’s and 80’ including the Ladies and Entertainments Sections. 

She will be well remembered as the pianist who accompanied the cast during the club’s very successful “pantomime era”. Laura’s funeral will be on Friday, February 1st at Rose Hill Crematorium at 1.20pm and thereafter to Castle Park.

Although personal flowers are welcome there will also be a collection on the day for the RNLI
