Norman Wynne, former Sunday People chief northern football correspondent and an honorary life member of the Football Writers Association, died on Tuesday in North Manchester Hospital. He was 77. Norman was secretary of the northern branch of the FWA for many years before being made an honorary life member of the national association.
His funeral service will be held at the Synagogue, Gigg Lane Cemetery, Bury (near the Bury FC ground), on Thursday at 2.15pm. The family have requested no flowers but donations can be made to Brookvale Home (caring for people with special needs), Simister Lane, Prestwich, Manchester M25 (Tel: 0161 653 1767).
Please note: There is no vehicle access to the cemetery from Gigg Lane. Car drivers need to use St Peter’s Road, off the main Bury-Manchester Road (A56). Coming from Manchester, turn RIGHT into St Peter’s Road at St Peter’s Church , which is directly opposite the Swan and Cemetery pub (about 400 yards before Gigg Lane). The synagogue is a small one-storey red brick building.
Our sincere condolences go to Norman’s wife Jean and the family.
