Phil was the orig­i­nal ‘P’ in PJs Ski Hire in Mansfield be­tween 1990 and 1993, and was an im­por­tant fig­ure of Bumps Ski and Surf from the mid to late 1990s.

Over the last 14 years, he and Judy have been based in Heath­cote, where they have been busy build­ing a vine­yard and win­ery busi­ness from scratch.

In hon­our of Phil, the Mee­han fam­ily has re­quested do­na­tions in lieu of flow­ers page, where do­na­tions can be made in mem­ory of Phil, who was a true gen­tle­man.
