VALE PETER RONALD HARDGROVE 16/11/1950 – 15/12/2023

It is with profound sadness that I inform you of the passing of Mr Peter Hardgrove.

Joining the Club in 1979, Peter was elected to the Board of Wests Ashfield Leagues in 1988 and assumed the role of Chairman in 2001, serving in that role until 2011.

He was awarded Life Membership of the Club in 2001.

Peter was also a Director of Wests Tigers Rugby League Football Club, and was proudly Chairman as they tasted premiership success in 2005.  Peter was awarded Life Membership in 2021.

That same year, following his long involvement with Leagues Clubs Australia (formerly Leagues Clubs Association NSW), Peter became President of the Association, a position he held until his passing.  He was also awarded Life Member of the Association. 

Peter was a keen golfer. Peter has had an association with Wests Ashfield Men’s Golf Club for over 50 years.  He is a Life Member and past President of Wests Ashfield Men’s Golf Club and a long-time Patron of Wests Ashfield Ladies Golf Club.

In later years, Peter involved himself more with his “local”, Wests Sports Club, where he has served on the Western Suburbs Leagues Men’s Bowling Club Committee.  He was Chairman of the Bowling Club for many years.  Peter was also awarded Life Member of the Bowling Club in 2019.

Peter was a retired Police Officer, with a career spanning over 30 years as a member of the NSW Police Force.

To Peter’s children, Josh and Lauren and their partners, grandchildren Billie and Ella, brother John and partner Julie Romero, we offer our deepest condolences and support at this very sad time.
