Staff to attend Roger Harding's funeral

Pirate Leisure at the Memorial Stadium will be closed tomorrow morning to allow staff to attend Roger Harding's funeral.

The shop will be closed between 9.30am and 1pm, but the Supporters Club shop in Kingswood will remain open.

Roger's funeral will take place tomorrow at 10.30am at Westerleigh Crematorium, followed by a celebration of his life at the Memorial Stadium.

The family have requested that nobody wears black and that there are no flowers.

Roger, who has been Bristol Rovers kitman for 11 years, sadly lost the battle for his life last week, and will be hugely missed by everyone connected with the club.

A collection will be held for St Peter's Hospice, who looked after the family during Roger's illness, and Robsarttt a charity close to the family's hearts.
