In Memoriam – Gerry Prior

Many East Farndon residents and former residents will be sad to learn of the recent death of Gerry Prior. Below is a memory of him from Bob Boucher.

Gerry and Lorna first moved to East Farndon in 1977 and lived at Hillside. Gerry took on village life with gusto; he joined the village hall committee, was a thespian in the village shows, did the BBQ cooking with Jim Grant, played cricket for the village team, opening the batting and keeping wicket.  Although they moved from the village to Husbands Bosworth, and then to Market Harborough, they still kept close contact with the village, joining in most things that were going on. He played golf with David Thake, David Deacon, John Bush and others with the U3A at Kilworth Springs golf club. Gerry will be sadly missed by all. RIP Gerry Prior.

Gerry is shown in the photo which was taken of those who helped in the restoration of the church bells in 1990. Gerry is in the back row, second along from the right.
