It is with great sadness that we report the death of one of the Branch's founder members, Timothy (Tim) John Bolton. Born on the 19th March 1949, Tim passed away in the Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham, on Saturday 10th December. Tim was a fountain of knowledge when it came to CAMRA, Real Ale, Pubs, and Breweries. He will be sadly missed by everyone that knew him.
Tim's funeral was held on Friday 6th January, and was followed by a wake in the St John's Hotel, Queen's Road, Kingston upon Hull.
