Sympathy: I have just been told that local gardener Brian Morris has died. Brian was a very quiet man with a great sense of humour. He was a wonderful gardener who was often seen around the village doing gardens for others in the old fashioned way, by hand, when he was done everything was so neat and tidy, not a leaf od blade of grass out of place.. He grew some of the most beautiful flowers and vegetables and won a great many awards at the horticultural shows. We send our love and thoughts to his family.
