Gone Home – Rodney Walker – updated funeral details

Hampshire Scouting was very sad to hear of the passing of Rodney Walker, President of the Solent Regatta and former Sea Scout Leader.

Rodney taught woodwork at the Bishop Wordsworth school, Salisbury as well as running their Sailing Club for over 18 years. He joined the Solent Regatta Committee in the 1970s while a Scout leader at 3rd Salisbury. He ran the sailing from a pontoon in the middle of Southampton Water while the regatta was at Marchwood. Since then he has held several roles in the regatta culminating with president which he took up in 2013 He worked with a number of Scout groups in Hampshire including 4th Eling and 25th Southampton. He was awarded the Bar to the Silver Acorn in 2013.

He will be missed by all who knew him.

Rodney’s funeral Service at St Francis’ Church, Castle Road, Salisbury, SP1 3PN at 3pm on 26th February. This will be followed by Cremation, and then refreshments will be served in the Hall behind the Church at St Francis,
not at Dennis Marsh House. This will make moving and transport much easier, and it may be helpful to use the Park and Ride at the Beehive, SP4 6TB where the bus stops near the Church. These buses run every 15 mins. (R 11)
