Memorial service for Andrew Longmore

A memorial service  to commemorate the life of Andrew Longmore, the former Independent on Sunday and Sunday Times sportswriter, is to be held at 11am on Friday 20 September at St Mary’s Church, Funtington near Chichester. It will be followed by refreshments at the nearby Fox and Hounds.

The family would be pleased to see his many friends in the industry and sports world. It would also mean a great deal to them if friends and colleagues could put pen to paper (however briefly) and share their memories of Andrew, who died in April, to add to their own. There will be a box placed at the entrance to the church to gather recollections.

As parking is very limited in the village, it is strongly suggested that, if travelling from London, those attending take the train to Chichester and then share a 15-minute taxi to Funtington.

Neil Morton, Andrew’s sports editor at the Independent on Sunday, is the point of contact for any queries. For catering purposes, please let Neil know if you are planning to be there.
