Graham Glover

I was contacted earlier this evening by Mel, (Graham’s sister) who tragically discovered her brother dead at his house this morning.

It seems that Graham may have fallen over in the kitchen and struck his head so hard that he didn’t wake up.

Mel has asked me to share this news with the club so those who knew him are made aware. It is a task met with huge sadness and great difficulty, I was particularly fond of Graham.

There are as yet no further details, Mel will keep me updated as to funeral arrangements etc.

Rob.

Former Green Lanes Officer for the club 2013- 2016, Dorset rep for the Green Lane Association (GLASS) since 2016 and now the Green Roads Officer for the club again as well. I'm a bit of a self confessed Land Rover nut, I've had two 3.9 V8 Discoverys, a 4.0 V8 P38, a 300tdi Discovery (bloody awful), a genuine factory V8 90 CSW, a TD5 Discovery and a diesel P38. I had a brief (and disastrous) fling with a Japanese make in the quest for reliability before returning to Land Rover with my current ride, a 300tdi Defender 90. I used to do all the modifying stuff but decided that a Land Rover is really good enough as is - in my opinion huge tyres and a winch are really only necessary for trials/pay and play. For green roads, a decent set of All Terrain tyres (along with a respectful attitude to the countryside) are all you really need modification-wise. I make absolutely no apology for taking a hardline approach to green road use, I maintain a fiercely preservationist and often vociferous stance, am intolerant of mud-pluggers and illegal off-roaders and am a firm believer in promoting both the GLASS Code of Conduct and the three 'R's - Responsible Rural Recreation. We go out, we enjoy the countryside, we share the countryside, we leave it as we found it (or better) for everyone else to enjoy, we improve it by clearing obstacles we encounter, there is absolutely no wallowing in mud, no winches, no drama, no fuss, no glory.

  1. Such a shock, I can’t believe it. Poor poor man, good bye my friend, you’ll be greatly missed. Will await the funeral details xxx

  2. Really sad & very unexpected. I know his health has not been the best of late but didn’t expect this. Graham has been with the club for at least 20 years & was part of the furniture.

  3. If the family would like a cortege of Land Overs on Graham’s final journey count me in. He was such a nice bloke.

  4. What a shock! Such sad news.Glad to have enjoyed your company on Green Road trips you will be missed. Cheers!

  5. Really tragic news. Graham was a very keen DLRC ‘Green Roader’ who took part in as many outings as possible. Recently he accompanied me on one of my Mid-week trips and was at the forefront of the lane clearing. He will be greatly missed.
