Honorary Vice-President of the Primary Club of Australia, Arthur Morris, sadly passed away on Saturday 22nd August, following a brief illness.  Arthur was 93 years old, survived by his gorgeous wife Judith and loving family. Arthur played 46 Tests for Australia and earned a place in the Australian Cricket Hall of Fame.  On behalf of President Jim Maxwell AM and the members of the Primary Club, we offer our sincere sympathies to Judith and the family.

He was also a great servant of the Primary Club, a Vice-President since our inception in 1974.  He and Judith attended many Club functions, most recently the Marathon Cricket Dinner in 2010, where we celebrated his 88th Birthday amongst a number of his former cricket mates – Ken Archer, Ian Craig, Neil Harvey, Sam Loxton and Warren Saunders.

Judith and the family have determined that in lieu of flowers for his Memorial Service, you may donate to the Primary Club’s charity trust providing sporting and recreational facilities to people with a disability.  You may donate now by clicking on this link.  Or calling Anja on (02) 9980-2525.
