News & Announcements
It is with the deepest of regrets that I have to tell you of Tony's sad passing on the evening of Saturday 10th Feb at the Royal Berkshire hospital. Tony was a great friend and colleague to us all on the parish council. He was also involved for many years in several other village organisations. We shall miss him greatly.
