Dear Friends in Hamsterley and South Bedburn,
I am sure we all share a sense of deep sadness and shock over the sudden death of Bernie Heslop earlier this week. I have been asked to let you know of the arrangements for his funeral.
The ceremony will take place at the new Wear Valley Crematorium at Coundon at 10.30am on Wednesday 23rd June. Those who would like to attend are welcome to do so.
There will then be a Service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving at the Methodist Church in Hamsterley at 11.30am.
This will be followed by refreshments in the Hamsterley Social Club.
Sue Heslop has requested that no flowers be given. Those who would like to make a donation in lieu are kindly asked to support Help For Heroes. Donations can either be given in the Chapel or to Trish at the Club.
With best wishes to you all,
