Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

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.
