Mr Charles H Gardiner died 16th September. It was sad that he enjoyed only a few weeks of retirement. First there had been his wife’s illness and death, and then his own three months later. In Badsey we shall happily recall his presentation of the prizes at the Flower Show as one of the last (if not the last) of his public appearances. The funeral is to be private, at Cheltenham, but a public memorial service is to be held in Badsey Church on Saturday 1st October at 11 am. May God grant rest and light to his servants.
