It was with great sadness that members of the Bangor Grammarians committee learned of the death on Saturday 29 June 2024 of our good friend and colleague Peter Matthews.
He was a past pupil of both Connor House and Bangor Grammar School (between 1960 and 1972). A long-serving member of the committee, Peter was proud to hold the position of vice-chairman and was always to the fore at Bangor Grammarians activities.
He was a great supporter of our annual Grammarian magazine – which included hand delivering dozens of copies around Ballyholme and district each September.
Peter’s presence and enthusiastic involvement will be greatly missed at our meetings. Sincere sympathy is extended to his family circle on their grievous loss.

The funeral service took place on Thursday 4 July at Bangor Abbey, followed by committal at Clandeboye Cemetery. In lieu of family flowers, the family kindly ask that donations be made to The Marie Curie Hospice.
