Brian Simpson

With sadness we acknowledge the death of Brian Simpson.

We remember his many years of commitment to the Village Hall Trust and his sterling work he did as Treasurer so effectively and efficiently. Not only in the day to day finances, and in making every penny earned count, but in the mammoth task of securing and handling the funding that was achieved for the extension and improvements to the village hall.

Brian retired from the Trust in 2011 but continued along with his wife Daphne to support village activities.

St Mary’s church also enjoyed his quiet wisdom and financial expertise as he served for many years on the PCC .  How we loved to hear his measured tones while reading the lesson on a Sunday morning.

I’m sure I speak for everyone involved with the Drop–in,  the Bowls Club, the Wine Club, those who shared his love of croquet, and those of us who had the pleasure of working with him. A true gentleman. He will be remembered with great fondness.
