Royston Evans RIP

Pasted Graphic 2


The year began sadly with the funeral of our member Roy Evans on 18 January. Eleven branch members attended the packed service at the Church of the Holy Cross, Sherston, in tribute to a much-loved local man. Roy was a firefighter in Malmesbury for over 18 years and ran his own wrought-iron business. He made Malmesbury Town Gates, which are by the river Avon as you enter the town from the Chippenham direction. His last journey was on the vintage fire engine used on the occasion of his marriage to Juliet. In memory of Roy, NWMMOC has made donations to Dorothy House Hospice and a pancreatic cancer research charity. Our thoughts are with Juliet and the family.
