Dear Blogger

PETER EVANS,  of Castle View, Church Street died suddenly on 4th November, he will be sadly missed by his wife Lynn and the village organisations he supported.  Peter contributed so much to our village.

Peter`s funeral will be at the Shrewsbury Crematorium at 12.30 on 8th December.   Family flowers only please but any donations for the Air Ambulance would be appreciated.

Peter and Lynne retired to Ruyton XI Towns in the summer of 1996 after he had served in the post office for many years.  His main interests were walking, wildlife, particularly owls, and he was a member of the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust and the National Trust.  He had a keen interest in all things that fly, mechanical or otherwise. As a keen gardener, he was Chair of the Cliffe Garden Club and also a member of the Ruyton Local History Society.  An accomplished photographer, Peter took many pictures of the village, including those in the local history website. 

Peter and Lynn enjoyed some interesting long distance holidays when he was able to put his photography skills to good use, and he was the obvious person to judge the photography section of the Home Grown Show.

Peter leaves his wife  Lynn and many friends in the village.
