Sad news from the Village Hall

Sad news from the Village Hall

Steve Stafford, caretaker at the village hall for more than 20 years, was taken ill last month and died on April 2nd in Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Steve has been a familiar face to most people hiring the hall, making sure that everything was ready for bookings, and also working hard to maintain and improve the fabric of the building, and to keep the gardens looking colourful, especially for events during the summer months. More »

He was also well known around the village, whether out walking his dog, cycling on various bikes ( including that scary-looking recumbent one ), working on many of our houses, or just enjoying a drink in one, or both, of the village pubs.

Steve's funeral service will be at All Saints' Church on Weds 18th April at 11am, following which we will celebrate his life in the traditional way at the Blue Ball. All are welcome » Less
