Mounts Bay Harriers members past and present were shocked and saddened this week with the news of the sudden passing of one of its inaugural members, Mr Chris Trewhella. Chris who suffered a fatal bleed on the brain on Thursday night and although being rushed to Derriford unfortunately never recovered. Chris was well known within the MBH family and to many outside, an always friendly face with everyone, welcoming smile and giggly sense of humour, He was a junior coach for many years and also he took part in many triathlons, running events and marshalled at a lot of MBH events, he will be sorely missed and remembered by all, I’m sure we all have many fond personal memories of being with Chris
Details of his funeral are yet to be released but I’m sure everyone will join us with prayers and thoughts for his wife Louise and son Jack. RIP Christopher Robin.
