VALERIE Hyde: People in Silchester were saddened last week to hear of the death of Valerie, at the age of 92. She was such a stalwart of our church, as warden for more than 20 years.
She had been village hall chairman until very recently, and formerly was Guider with First Silchester and county treasurer for Hampshire North. She will be sadly missed and a very hard act to follow. Her funeral is today, at 2pm in St Mary’s Church.
