I have a lovely memory of sitting on the floor in your lounge at Careys feet after baking for our Silver D of E, he was making us laugh and seemed quite happy to have his house taken over by a gaggle of girls. He was such a lovely person and did so much for others. He led a terrific life bringing up an amazing family too. Love to you all. ( Donation made directly on the Air Ambulance site, a very very worthwhile cause)

Dear friends,
With the rapidly evolving situation regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19), we are conscious that you may be concerned about attending a funeral, especially if you are in the 'at risk' groups. Whilst we would have loved seeing you all at the funeral, the family will understand if you feel that the risk of travelling or being in a large gathering is too great.
Therefore, we have arranged for the funeral service to be steamed live on the internet.
To use the live streaming service, which is free of charge, please contact Margaret or one of the family who will be able to give you further details.
With warmest wishes
Margaret and family
