It is with great sadness that I have to report the death of Mr Randolph Minchin, one time resident of The Bungalow, Crown Lane, Parkend, more latterly a resident of Newport.
Mary, his daughter, let me know that he had passed away peacefully this morning, aged, I think, 90.
I am sure that many people will recall his beautiful garden and the annual produce prizes that he took each year at our carnival. He was a keen sportsman in his younger days, playing football and cricket and was also a Vice President of our cricket club.
Funeral arrangements will be posted here.
