Andy Biddle Obituary


As you may know, local OV sportsman Andy Biddle tragically passed away recently whilst playing cricket for SCCC Vets team. Andy was a well respected and widely know character across all sporting channels. Andy played numerous times for the Old Boys XI against the school and was friends with a lot of the rugby club members attending the Sporting Luncheon on numerous occasions. Details on Andy's funeral are below with a message from his daughter.


For those who want to help us celebrate dads life, his funeral will be held on Friday 6th July at 11am in Holy Trinity Parish Church, Sutton Coldfield. Notified family and close friends will then go to the cemetery at 12.30pm while everyone else moves on to Sutton Coldfield Cricket Club for the Wake. We ask that it be family flowers only but for anyone who wishes, please see link below for donations to 2 charities, The British Heart Foundation and Prostate Cancer UK. There is limited parking at both the church and the Cricket Club so please keep this in mind....not that we expect many people to stay sober! Lauren, Saul and I want the funeral to be as full of life and humour as he was, so please bring a picture of you and Bids with any memories you shared with him so we can all remember him as he should be.
