More sad news I’m afraid. I’ve been informed that John Sayer passed away peacefully on 23rd December. Apparently he had had a stroke earlier but rallied remarkably. He was on good form, singing carols with his daughter, Jane, and her family only a few days before.
John had been President, Chairman, Secretary and just about everything else for the club as for a period he almost single handedly ran it. Although in a nursing home for the last few years John still took a strong interest ringing on occasions for updates on how we were doing. He always gave wise advice.
John will have a private family burial, a public memorial service will be held at St, Mary's, Sheet at 2 P.M. on Friday 11th January, followed by a gathering at Sheet Village Hall.
Our thoughts are with the family at this sad time.
