Fred Ollerton - Funeral Arrangements

It is with deep regret that we share the devastating news that former LFYFC chairman, president and great friend and supporter of the federation, Fred Ollerton, has passed away.

Arable and potato farmer, Fred served as the NFU County Chairman in 2013 and was always very supportive of both LFYFC and the NFU in the county. 

Always willing to help out, Fred's farm has been used as a location for many LFYFC events in the past, most notably the Parbold YFC Foam Party, the County Rally in 2016, and most recently, Parbold YFC's Old School Rally, held just last month.

Fred will be sorely missed in the Federation, as he was such an approachableperson who was always willing to give his opinion on matters and to offer his help and time to ensure the LFYFC continues for many years to come.

Our thoughts are with his wife Denise and their children Antony and Catherine.

Funeral Arrangements:

The funeral will take place on Monday 30th July 2018 with a service at St Wilfred's Church, Standish at 2pm followed by interment. Then back to Home Farm, Back Lane Standish.
