It is with deep regret that we have to announce the untimely death of Roger on Sunday 12th January 2020. His funeral service, which was held last Wednesday at Dukinfield Crematorium, was attended by a huge gathering representing a wide cross-section of family, relatives, friends and colleagues who had worked with him over the years.
The impressive success and growth of the Local Community Matters website was in many respects a tribute to the exceptional talent and the vast amount of time that Roger willingly invested into its development.
Roger, almost single-handedly, was responsible for the on-going success and the continuous expansion in visitor numbers of this popular website, acting as editor, writer, web-master and advertising manager. He was, without question, the focal point for anyone wishing to contact or contribute to this popular online local news forum.
With the death of Roger, who was the driving force behind its success, we are now unsure as to the future of the website.
