I wanted to let you know that Bert's funeral is going to be on Friday 5th December. We'll be having a service at The Kerith Centre starting at 12.45 to remember Bert's life, then going on to Easthampstead Park Crematorium, then back to The Kerith Centre for food and drinks.
Given the large number of people who I know will want to come and say goodbye to Bert and celebrate his life, the parking at The Kerith Centre is inevitably going to be stretched so please look to share cars wherever possible.
I've been overwhelmed by the number of people who have been stopping me, or sending me emails, to tell me their own particular "Bert story". So many different little acts of kindness which Bert (and his wife Olive) did for so many different people over the years. If you have a "Bert story" then I'd love it if you could add it as a comment to my previous blog entry. There are already a number of stories there, but it would be great to have a whole load of them as a tribute to his life. We might even get to read some of them out on the 5th.
