Robin Bush (BGS 1944-50)

We sadly have to report the passing away of Robin Bush. Our thoughts are with his family.

 

A highly-talented Sittingbourne sportsman, Robin Bush, has died aged 82 after suffering a severe stroke 11 months ago. Robin, a member of a prominent sporting family, excelled at cricket, football and hockey at Borden Grammar School (1944-50). He was selected in his youth to play representative cricket for Kent teams and came close to joining the Kent CCC staff. He played for Bobbing Court CC (then Halfway House) and later had many successful seasons as an accurate swing bowler for Gore Court's top Kent League side. He was employed as a draftsman by Bowaters (Sittingbourne) for about 30 years before moving to Crowborough (Sussex). He is survived by his second wife Wendy , two daughters and a son.
