Remembering Don Beadle

We have added a new half hour recording to the Parish Council website Sound Gallery which is of Don Beadle in conversation with John Jenkin. Don was headmaster at Hemingford Grey Primary School from 1974 to 1990 and will be remembered fondly by the many villagers who attended the school during that time. Don passed away at home on the 6th November 2017 aged 90 years.
