Peter Cornwell

I met Mel and Brenda when they were on the committee of Great Harwood Sporting Club, I was a teenager waiting on tables there, serving drinks etc in the mid 1970’s. They always brought an air of honesty, professionalism and decency with their involvement with the place which impressed a young me as there were many other ‘characters’ involved at the time. RIP.


Jo & Phil Morrison

God bless Uncle Mel, hoping you’re raising a glass of red with Auntie Brenda xx


Peter Holden – Secretary Churches Together in Great Harwood
