News in full

Paul Britland

It is with much sadness that we have to report that Paul Britland, our Treasurer, passed away at the end of August after a brave battle with ill health.

Paul became our Treasurer when Chesterfield Folk Club was formed in 2008 and a new committee took over what had previously been The Attic Folk Club. Since then he has ensured our finances have been properly managed and he was a great asset to the club. He will be greatly missed.

People attending our concerts might not have seen a great deal of Paul. He was often to be found in the small room at the back of the theatre organising tickets to sell on the door, internet pre-sales and calculating payments to artists, many of whom work on a percentage basis. However, his widow, Kam, is much more in the public eye, working as part of the front-desk team. Our thoughts are very much with her and Paul’s family at this very sad time.

Once the funeral arrangements are known we shall post the details on our Facebook page.
