Brian Winstanley
January 1936 to June 2024

Sadly Brian, my husband, mentor and best friend, died on the 12th June whilst the two of us were out cycling in Cheshire.

He had just boasted that he had reached 33.6 mph down the hill to Acton Bridge. Unfortunately, the steep hill on the other side proved too much and he collapsed just before the top.

Brian enjoyed a full life, imbuing in me his love of cycling and skiing. He seemed to be super-fit. Often, returning a tricky shot at tennis when no-one expected him to be anywhere near the ball.

I shall miss him dearly.
