We have recently received the sad news of the sudden death of Andrew P Reeves, a former District Member from Buriton. He was 70 years of age. Most of the older A&P District members will remember him.
In the seventies although he still lived in the Petersfield area he became a regular member of the Chichester Cathedral band where he met his future wife, Ruth Halford. They were married in 1973 and continued to live in Petersfield until 1998 when they moved close to Delabole in Cornwall.
The funeral will take place at Bodmin Crematorium on Monday 30th January at 12.30pm.
There will also be a Thanksgiving Service for Andrew’s life at St Mary’s Church, Buriton on Thursday 2nd February at 2pm.
The Chichester Cathedral ringers have been invited to ring a quarter peal before the Service and there will be general ringing afterwards by the Buriton ringers and any others present who would like to join them. It has been requested that the bells will not be muffled for this occasion.
Buriton Tower Captain
