  • David,

    My Mum and Dad remember Ken Greasley, I wonder if he remembers them?. We used to own The Old White House Antiques, Fine Furnishings and Period Furnishings. John and Jennifer Dilly and children Carolyn, Richard & Claire.

  • I remember the old V.C. hall, my grandad and grandma, Fred & Dorothy Gilbert (Nan was sister to Ken Geasley) were caretakers of the old village hall. Fred always locked up after a wedding or party at the hall. He was also in charge of the bingo every Monday night. Unfortunately Grandad Fred never got to see the new hall but Nan did – and she didn’t like it either !!!!
    But it is nice for me to see uncle Ken and others that I know on these photos.
    Thank you,
    Donna Blanche (nee Taylor)

  • well… Ken Greasley was a wonderful man. Not just was he a wonderful man, he was my Great Grandad, (G.G.) as I called him. He was lovely, sadly he passed away 3 years ago of cancer. He was father of Cheryl Hibbert, Grandad of Nicky Veitch and Shreen Shimmin, and Great Grandfather of Indy Shimmin, Jack Shimmin, Charlie Veitch and I (Harry Veitch). RIP G.G., as you will always be in all of our hearts. xxxxxxxxxxxx

  • My dad Tommy Fisher is in the last picture! He is gone but not forgotten. He lived in the village all his life. He worked for Mr. Ken Greasley on the pig farm. I used to love going to the farm with him when I was younger. They were happy days, love you Dad x
