1960s Exmoor Reunion – Save the Date!

1960s Exmoor Reunion – Update!

 

Some of you will have received my email of a few weeks ago alerting you to a 1960s Exmoor Reunion proposed by Mark ‘Sam’ Wightman (57-63 C). We have added more to the mailing list to try to capture as many old boys who were at West Buckland during this period as possible. We do not however have email addresses for everyone, so do let your peers know about it.

 

We very much hope that you will be able to attend this event, starting on Wednesday 22nd March 2017 with optional golf during the day and a dinner at School, followed on Thursday 23rd (if you are fool hardy enough) by an opportunity to run, or walk The Exmoor with the School. Or, alternatively, to sit in the Poltimore with a pint and relive those happy memories of the races of your youth… I have heard some fantastic stories in the process of talking to people about this event!

 

Despite trying (unsuccessfully) to shift the blame onto Mark, I did omit to include the information in my last email that wives and partners are of course very welcome to attend the meal and The Exmoor.

 

Below is the list of names of people who have registered with the office to date to participate in some or all of the event. Even if you have let Sam know you are intending to come, please do make sure you tell us too!

Rev Chris Willis (77-92S)

It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Rev Chris Willis (77-92S) who passed away last week.

Chris was a stalwart of the local community having married and christened many Alumni.

He was also a great supporter of West Buckland School and OWBA events.

He will be missed by many.

We have received many messages of condolence and a full tribute to Chris will be included in the Summer edition of the Buckland Brief.

As requested by so many Alumni, here are the details of the Thanksgiving Service.

 

Rev Chris Willis - Exmoor Run 2016 - Copy

 

Willis Reverend Christopher Charles Billopp passed away unexpectedly but peacefully at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital on 24th January 2017, aged 84 years.

Beloved husband of the late Sylvia. Much loved father of Alistair and Helen and grandfather of Henry, George, Oscar and Lilly. A life dedicated to the community.

A private cremation service will be followed by a public service of thanksgiving, which will take place at St. Hieritha’s Church, Chittlehampton on Tuesday 7th February at 2.30pm.

There is a bring and share tea and food afterwards in the village hall.

Arrive early as parking could be some distance from the church.

No black please. No flowers please but donations in his memory will go to The Calvert Trust, Exmoor and Go North Devon, at the service or care of J. Westacott & Son Funeral Services, 2a West Street, South Molton, EX36 4DG.
