Arthur French
We are sad to announce the passing of Arthur John French, who died peacefully at home on Friday 17th June.

He was a kind and gentle man who was much loved by the children of Walhampton school. He encouraged generations of bee-keepers at Walhampton and many will have fond memories of the delight in taking home their honeycombs.

His funeral will be held at St Mary's Church, South Baddesley, SO41 5RP at 11am Friday 1st July. Flowers are welcome.
Followed by a reception at Passford House Hotel - SO41 8LS
