Friday 10/7/15. The Textile Book of Remembrance at The Spring

July 10, 2015

This afternoon we visited the new Textile Book of Remembrance at The Spring.

The Spring commissioned local artist Margaret Marks to create a book in memory of those from Havant who lost their lives in The Great War. The result is a 15 foot long embroidery alongside 100 fabric poppies created by the local Community. Very moving and beautiful.

Friday 10/7/15 In memory of Beth Gleadall

July 10, 2015

Today Andy and I attended the funeral of Beth Gleadall at The Oaks Crematoriumin Havant.

Beth was a great supporter of The Mayor’s coffee mornings, making beautiful cakes. Her late husband Arthur was at one time a Havant District Councillor before we became a Borough.


It was a lovely uplifting service remembering a lady obviously loved and respected by those who knew her.
