Hello All,
 
Sadly I have been informed that one of our Bantam Branch Club members, Mick Barker has peacefully passed away on the morning of Thursday 22nd October following a lengthy illness.
 
Mick was an extremely well liked and respected member who had a great sense of humour, a sharp wit and always had time for people. He will be sorely missed and fondly remembered not only for his personal qualities but also for his very well presented car and BSA Bantam and a willingness to help others, quite often helping out on the Bantam stand at the Stafford Shows.
 
Our thoughts and condolences go to his wife, Jean, daughter Sue and son Paul. I am grateful to Eddie Newton, his lifelong friend and business partner for informing me of this sad occurrence.    
 
Regards
Giles.

Hello All,
Please find the email I received from Eddie Newton, Mick Barkers life long friend and business partner thanking everyone for their kind thoughts and comments following Mick`s passing.
 
Hi Giles, 
 
An update on Mick .
I have spoken to Jean and she would like to thank everyone in the Bantam Club for the cards and messages she has received, and appreciates the affection we all had for Mick. There were a lot from our Club, plus Mike and Ann Kilvert from and on behalf of the Committee.
 
The funeral is on Friday 20th but in line with current regulations only 30 people in attendance maximum, have been invited.
 
Could you put Jean`s thanks as above on the forum please and she hopes to come to one of our meetings to pass her thanks on in person as soon as we are up and running again. Plus my thanks to all the lads in the Club for their calls and e-mails to me in the last two weeks which has been very much appreciated .
 
Regards Eddie.
