In glorious sunshine on Saturday the newly improved Littlebury village hall garden was dedicated to the memory of Denis Wright MBE who supported the village hall and local community for most of his life.

A bench was also dedicated to other long-serving village hall trustees, Mrs Susan Lloyd, Mr John Penney and Mr Gordon Wilby. Littlebury residents and the friends and family of Denis and John were joined by Susan, Gordon and their friends and family for the ceremony. Words of thanks were said by Paul Fennelly, Chairman of the Littlebury village hall committee followed by speeches from Denis’s son Richard; Mrs Lloyd’s daughter Henrietta;  John’s son Paul and Gordon Wilbyhimself. Just before the serving of a delicious afternoon tea, Denis’s wife Mary cut the ribbons of a bunch of red balloons revealing the new village hall garden plaque. Thank you Abi Porter for the excellent photographs.
