Heather Somerwill from Pinhoe sadly passed away on 28th February. Her funeral will be on Thursday 22nd of March. There is a private service at the Crematorium in the morning, followed by a memorial service at Pinhoe church at 2.30pm in the afternoon.

The following extract by Ian Campbell is from this month's Ringing Round Devon:

"When Heather's husband died in 1996 she donated the two treble bells at Pinhoe in his memory, making them up to eight and then learnt to ring herself. A staunch supporter of Pinhoe church (and church-warden for many years) Heather was the branch secretary for several years and continued to support the branch at all its functions even when she was no longer able to ring. We will miss seeing her around."
