In Memory of Michael Baker-Rogers

Mary Dann | June 18, 2016 |

Following the death of former Chairman and co-founder Michael Baker-Rogers on Monday the 22nd of June 2015, many Essex Tai Chi Academy members wished to dedicate a lasting memorial to him.

The Academy decided to purchase a bench which has now been positioned beside the towpath alongside the Chelmer and Blackwater canal in Heybridge, not far from where Michael kept his “beloved” boat and where he enjoyed many a walk.

On Friday the 17th of June 2016 a number of members visited the bench for the official unveiling.
