MEMORIAL Service: Last Thursday saw an absolutely packed St Mary’s Church to say farewell to Sylvia Dark, who was unbelievably generous with her friendship and time, both when running her care home and in organising many superb village events. Sylvia is greatly missed and our thoughts are with her husband Peter.
