The Philip Larkin Society is very sad to announce the death of one of its long-standing trustees, Belinda Hakes.
Belinda helped to edit the Society’s journal, About Larkin and during her time as Education Officer organised very successful Larkin Study Days for sixth formers. An exceptional teacher and great Larkin enthusiast. She will be hugely missed.
Please join us for a celebration of Belinda’s life at Chanterlands Crematorium HU5 4EF small chapel on Monday 13th January at 11am and afterwards at Cottingham Parks Golf Club, Wood Hill Way, HU16 5SW. Later she will be buried at Kelsey Woodland LN7 6EH where her grave will be marked by an oak tree and plaque. Visitors welcome. Bright colours. Rather than flowers, donations to Queens Centre, Castle Hill Hospital, Cottingham:
