I am very sorry to report that former Trustee and Vice Chairman, Richard Parfitt, passed away, peacefully in his sleep on 24 November, after a short illness.
Richard had given a long service to the railway and for many years held the post of joint chief booking clerk. As an elected Trustee and as Vice Chairman, Richard also held the post of Operations Director for the Company and oversaw several changes during his tenure.
Naturally our thoughts go out to his family Laura, Theo and Amy at this very sad time.
The funeral took place on Monday 10 December at Eastbourne Crematorium, Hide Hollow, Eastbourne BN23 8AE starting at 13.45.
The family request that donations be made to St Wilfrid's Hospice which is where Richard would have gone for his rehab, but sadly that was not to be.
Following the funeral service there was a gathering at the Runt in Tun pub, Maynards Green, Heathfield, East Sussex TN21 0DJ
Roy Watts (Chairman)
John, who was a volunteer on our Buffet Cars until about six months ago, sadly passed away on Monday 17 December 2012. He loved the railway. The funeral was on 4 January at 14:30 at Eastbourne Crematorium.
