Please will you pass on my congratulations to Bert and Barbara Bonsor on their award for a truly outstanding 64 years Service to Wrangle Youth Club.

Their dedication, loyalty and commitment over the decades to Wrangle Youth Club has been rightly recognised and rewarded, a fantastic achievement.

I’m sure thousands of people have passed through the Wrangle Youth Club and remember it well. It is thanks to respected people like the Bonsor’s clubs survive.

I remember visiting Wrangle Youth Club on several occasions with one of my fellow Boston Judo Club coaches Brian Waterfall and helping deliver judo.

We were made welcome and a great deal should be learnt from the Bonsor’s approach.

In my small time at Wrangle Youth Club I learnt some valuable lessons from them.

I feel Mr & Mrs Bonsor’s 64 years commitment to a single club will be a struggle to equal, if ever at all in any volunteer club.

Wrangle Youth Club now needs additional committed energetic loyal helpers to carry on the hard work of the Bonsors.

I hope people will step up to the mark and volunteer their time in helping the youth of today at Wrangle Youth

Club.
