Eric Andrews

Some of us gathered to remember the life of Eric Andrews last night, a long term resident and contributor to the village. He was remembered as a gentle man, quiet and knowledgeable.

Total money collected                        £468

Cost of tree and professional planting  £328

Money left over                                  £140
