Bernard Major, born and bred in the village, had been ill for some years. The son of a Badsey grower, he did not follow his father’s footsteps, but for many years worked for Marshall’s as a driver, and lately for LBG as a representative. In his childhood he had been a member of the choir and during his youth he was a bell-ringer. He served in the army, and was a keen member of the British Legion. His family and large circle of friends in this parish will miss his cheerful companionship, and will remember with affectionate admiration how he learnt to accept his final illness. We send his family our condolences.
