At the September meeting of Chorley Circle Brother Brian Bunting celebrated 50 (+1) years membership of the Association. The celebration should have taken place in 2020, but was prevented by Covid regulations.
After the meeting over 50 Brothers and ladies enjoyed dinner, at which Brian was presented with his Anniversary Scroll by Immediate Past GB National President Eddie O’Donnell.
Brian started his working life as a plumber, but, after completing his apprenticeship, became an Insurance Agent, eventually becoming an Area Manager with Liverpool Victoria. In that position Brian and his wife, Margaret, and family, moved around the UK, living in Rochdale, Waltham Abbey, Handforth, Kilmalcolm, and Chorley.
Brian first joined Rochdale Circle in 1970, before transferring to London Charterhouse, Ringway, Chorley, and then back to Ringway when he moved house to be closer to family. He will maintain his membership of Chorley Circle as a joint member.
A lifelong supporter and season-ticket holder of Bolton Wanderers FC, Brian attends every home game with his two sons.
