Arthur Perkins rip

It is with sadness that we have to report the sudden death of Arthur Perkins, a friend of The Friends of the Forgotten Garden of Lewtrenchard and one of the “3 Musketeers” who were the original “surveyors” that rediscovered the forgotten garden. Arthur was a reservoir of local knowledge and was part of the team that won the “Local Knowledge” pub quiz before Christmas 2019. He and wife Margaret have taken a keen interest in how our amenity has developed and seldom have they missed an event or even a day without a visit.
Our thoughts and prayers for Margaret and her family.
