Dave Bushrod. 1940 – 2023.

It is with great sadness that the branch wishes to inform its members of the sudden death of one of our ex Branch Officers, Dave Bushrod. Dave passed away at the end of January 2023, aged 82.

Dave served as Branch Secretary of the North Oxon Branch of the POEU and NCU, which then combined with the Oxon & Bucks Branch (NCU) and eventually after a few more mergers got to where we are today.

Dave was the holder of many other Branch and Regional posts and was a Gold Badge and Honorary Member of our branch


Dave’s funeral service was held at Camborne in Cornwall and was attended by two of our branch officers, Mick Bagnall and Gordon Mason.

There are plans to hold a further celebration of life event in Banbury, Oxfordshire, later in the year, and details will be published in due course.

Our Branch would like to pass on our thoughts and condolences to Dave’s wife, family and friends at this sad time.
