Lowerhouse CC are saddened to hear of the passing of former committee man and current member and supporter Tom Porter. 
 
Tom was a huge character with a humerous disposition and ready wit, and was a personal friend to many at the club and beyond. 
 
Tom supported the club for many decades,, served as a committeeman in the 90s and maintained his affiliation watching matches at the ground. It was typical of Tom that he was determined to pay his membership despite his and the current difficulties. 
 
Tom served as a local councillor and along with Alan Hosker was instrumental in ensuring that the county council fulfilled their obligations to make main drain repairs and end the flooding of the ground. 
 
Many of us at the club have many happy memories of Tom and we extend our deepest sympathies to wife Debbie and daughters Sarah, Catherine and Abigail.
