FAMILY and friends of Woking men, Kris Cook and Pete Oldfield, will gather next week to mark the installation of a memorial bench for the much missed pair.
Kris’ mother Sue and close friends of the former Woking Water Activity Centre patrons have worked alongside Woking Borough Council to commission the permanent tribute to the duo at the former site of the WWAC on the banks of Goldsworth Park Lake.
Keen sportsman Kris, pictured, who had been an enthusiastic volunteer at the centre under the mentorship of founder Pete – who died in 2013 – sadly passed away earlier this year while taking part in the RideLondon 100 cycling event, aged 36. He was raising funds for Woking & Sam Beare Hospices at the time of his death.
All those who knew Kris and Pete, or local residents just wishing to offer their condolences, are welcome to join family and friends at the installation, due to take place next Thursday (November 27) at around 1pm.
An open invitation is also extended for all to attend the official dedication service which will take place at Goldsworth Park Lake on Sunday, November 30, at 3pm. Woking & Sam Beare Hospice Chief Executive Nigel Harding will be among those in attendance before heading to the annual Light up a Life memorial service at St Andrew’s Church in Denton Way.
The service is due to begin at 4pm.
