Thank you Gareth...
Our neighbour Gareth was told in 2010 that he had Motor Neurone Disease. Sadly he passed away in March 2012.
At his service in St Pauls' Church in Furzedown, hundreds of people paid tribute to him and remembered his generosity, enthusiasim, good humour and courage.
He was central to FACE's activities and will be sadly missed, especially at committee meetings with his battle cry of... "Get on with it!"
Thank you to Aspire Estate Agents for sponsoring our Quiz Night in February 2023 and the Garden Gig in June 2023.
