Today was a sad day in Parwich, when over 300 family members, friends, colleagues and neighbours crowded into the church to say farewell to Andrew Robinson, a much loved and respected member of the village who died recently after a short but serious illness.
He had been a successful prep school headmaster, a very talented sportsman, a lay reader in the church here and a committed family man who will be much missed.
Once again in its short life the new village hall was filled to capacity after the funeral when everyone at the service was invited by Andrew’s widow, Rachel, and their family to a delicious tea.
For any of our guests who may have met him or perhaps been to church when he was taking a service, and who would like more information no doubt there will be soon be a much longer piece on the Parwich Blog
