Our late GSL Stuart passed away recently having suffered a short illness.  His widow Jacky has asked me to publish her thanks for the many condolances she received and also to thank everyone who attended his funeral, she also was overwhelmed by the uniformed guard of honour consisting of the leaders and young people.  The collection was approximately £700 and was divided between the NHS caring department and towards a new kitchen at  Churchdown Brown Lodge Scout & Guide Headquarters. Stuart had worked tirelesly to raise the money required to refurbish the kitchen which sadly he did not quite get to see but was aware that grants had been awarded towards this project by Tewkesbury Borough Council and Churchdown Parish Council.
