2009 – It is with great sadness that the Harriers have learned that Barrie Strange – our club president and founder member – has passed away after serious illness.
As well as holding the post of president of the White Horse Harriers Barrie was also the president of the Oxfordshire Athletics Association serving the county for over 40 years. He also officiated at every one of the White Horse Half Marathons up until last year from which he had to withdraw through ill health. Barrie was a real bedrock of our club and will be sorely missed.
Our condolences and our thoughts go out to Margaret and also to their family at this sad time.
The funeral will take place on Friday, 19 June at 12:00 noon at St Andrew’s Church, East Hagbourne. A celebration of Barrie’s life will take place afterwards at the Conservative Club, Foxhall Road, Didcot, to which all are invited.
