Most people will have heard of the untimely death of Donny Carmichael. A frequent visitor to the Dragons Head, and probably one of the worst vocalists when somebody decided to play a musical instrument.
He has been Landlord of the Red Dragon and run the bar at the Rugby Club, among many other things. He was also a Town Councillor in Kirkby Lonsdale.
I have heard today that the Town Council have decided to honour Donny by naming a footpath in his name. I think that is a really lovely gesture to a well loved bloke who died far too young.
