The Funeral of Mr Alexander Jones

The dark days of winter may be nearly gone but there is still plenty of winter sadness for the village. We are are sorry to announce that the funeral of Mr Alexander Jones will take place at Wye Church at 2:00pm on Wednesday, February 22nd.

Mr. Jones was the last of three siblings and was until very recently to be seen jauntily smiling his way through the village. He was a small man with a very big smile and a great sense of humour, although it may be true to say that not everybody appreciated it. It was rather like having a living copy of Private Eye pronounce on current goings-on. Mr Jones was over ninety (I believe in excess of ninety-four years) and was very proud of the fact that he could get around without a stick or a mobility scooter. Mr Jones we shall miss you.
