Please can people indicate to Phil Mason if they will be going to Washingborough Hall, so that they will have an idea of numbers. Also please indicate if you have any dietary requirements.
During the committal service at Washingborough Crematorium the bells at Washingborough Church will be available as the Family and friends return to Washingborough Hall for the Wake.
It has been requested that there be no flowers but instead donations to Prostate Cancer UK. Hopefully, it will help others to find out they have the disease before it is too late.
Barbara wishes to thank all of you for the love and support you gave her and John during his illness and also the continuing warmth of your thoughts to her, Claire and Dawn since he passed away.
