Sir Peter Fry
(26 May 1931 - 11 May 2015)
Sir Peter Fry, former Association Chairman and Member of Parliament for Wellingborough and Rushden, died peacefully on 12 May 2015 aged 83. Following his career in insurance and retail, he became a councillor for Buckinghamshire County Council, before moving into politics in 1964. He was elected as a Member of Parliament in 1969, for Wellingborough and Rushden and represented the seat until 1997. During his time as an MP he was hugely supportive of the Bingo industry, moving on to become Chairman of The Bingo Association in 1998. He was Knighted in 1994.
We give thanks for and acknowledge the important contribution Sir Peter made to the industry, particularly in helping to steer the Gaming (Bingo) Act 1985 successfully through Parliament and for his counsel. We extend our deepest sympathy to Lady Fry and his family.
