Alan and Helen Vickers

We are sad to report the death of Helen Vickers, widow of Alan who played such a major role in the construction and fitting out of our Village Hall prior to its opening in 2005 (above picture shows Alan at work constructing the stage for the new building). 

Alan, a trained carpenter and shop fitter, worked ceaselessly and tirelessly for over a year on the Village Hall.  He also played a key role in the construction of our excellent bowling green, described as one of the best in this area of Yorkshire. Sadly, soon after the opening of the Village Hall, Alan was taken ill and died while on a  caravan holiday with Helen in Denmark. 

Helen later moved from the village to live in Monmouth to be near her family. Helen is survived by two daughters, Susan and Jane, and a son, David, as well as grandchildren and great grandchildren..
