A family funeral
The church at Broadway is rather small so there was an overflow of some sixty or so people standing in the churchyard listening and joining in the service, which was relayed by speakers, as the community said farewell to cousin Arleene's husband, Peter. Born in 1955 he had lived in the village all his life and been brought up on the family farm which he later operated.
Tribute was paid to his generous nature, his humour, and his love of a cup of tea, which had earned him the nickname of 'Fred' after the character in the Bernard Cribbins 1962 song: "Right, said Fred."
He was a family man and proud of his daughter's achievements in sport and academia. His picture which was used on the order of service was taken at her graduation and reflects his admiration.
