Rotarian Tony Green was remembered on Saturday, 4th September, in a ceremony celebrating his life at Holy Trinity Church in Easton Royal. Tony was well known locally not only for his Rotary work (he was one of the Special Elves at the Rotary Christmas Extravaganza in Marlborough every year), for his bee-keeping, his prize-winning photography, and for being a great neighbour. He and Valerie had lived in Easton Royal for many years before recently moving to Pewsey.
The church was full of family, friends from his working days in Hampshire Council, and from right across his many and varied interests. He had always been happy to help anybody, and he was always a pleasure to be with. He was a Member of the Magic Circle, kept bees for 60 years, was a respected Chartered Surveyor, and had a wonderful sense of humour.
Rotary provided a Memorial Bench in his name, and this was placed on a plinth in the Easton Royal Recreation Ground, where it will give views right across the field. It can also be used by locals enjoying the facilities of the Village Hall, and will be a permanent village asset, which Tony himself was, for many years.
