Thanksgiving Service for Tim Garden

Like many people who were away in August, when he died, I was glad to discover that a thanksgiving service for Tim’s life is being held on 30th November. I haven’t seen it publicised it elsewhere so, with Sue’s permission, I am posting details of it here – and please do pass on the information if you know of others who would be interested in it.

Please note that if you would like to go then you need to request tickets by 9th November from the address below.

The event is being organised by the RAF, hence the formality. I’m glad to see that all Tim’s many honours and distinctions are recognised – though I’m sure I won’t be the only one to think that the formidable figure it seems to describe is not quite the friendly and imnmensely personable man we remember!
