Memorial service held for churchwarden
A SERVICE is set to take place to allow people to pay tribute to a former headmaster and churchwarden.
Dr Leslie Bather died at his home in Whitehouse Way, Iver, on Monday, September 8. He was 84.
Originally from Merseyside, he moved to Iver Heath in 1970 on becoming headmaster of Bishopshalt School in Hillingdon, a position he held until 1996.
Dr Bather, who never married or had children, also served as churchwarden at St Margaret’s Church in Church Road, Iver Heath, for 10 years, and as a patron of the church, with the ability to appoint new rectors when others left.
Before joining Bishopshalt, he taught at other schools around the UK, and retained an interest in Bishopshalt after leaving.
His interests included art, theatre, the cinema and music.
A requiem will be held at St Margaret’s Church at noon tomorrow (Friday).
Any enquiries should be made to Arnold Funeral Service on 01753 535 556. CORRECTION: In the Buckinghamshire Advertiser, Thursday, September 18, in an article entitled ‘Read my lips: take control’, we incorrectly stated a lipreading session took place at Chalfont St Peter Community Library.
In fact, it took place at Chalfont St Peter Community Centre. Future classes will take place at the community centre, as well as at the Gerrards Cross Memorial Centre.
Call Judy Perry on 07837 993 923 for more information.
We apologise for the error and any confusion caused. CORRECTION: In the September 18 issue in our picture spread ‘Smiles all round at KnotFest’, we incorrectly captioned a photo on page 22, saying it was Bob Massie, when it was in fact Bob Newell. We are happy to put this right.
