Gerard Leighton

7 September, 2015 (All day)
Hemington Church

It is with great regret that we record the death of one of our Somerset trustees Gerard Leighton. He died peacefully at the home he loved on Wednesday 26th August. 


There will be a Thanksgiving Service in Hemington Church on Friday 18th September at 4.0 pm to which all are welcome.


Gerard was involved in many local societies and activities in Somerset and Bristol and was variously described as ‘a great character, ‘a scrupulous treasurer’, ‘an immense help and inspiration’ and ‘a sympathetic source of advice’.


Until his last illness he was a regular attender at Somerset VCH meetings and contributed articles to our newsletter. He will be greatly missed.
