Keith Wright

A Message from Beryl Wright

After 61 years living in Chearsley, I always know how special a village it was but even I didn’t

know just how special until St David’s Day 1st March. Keith, my best friend and the love of my life died peacefully at home free from pain and happy.

Jungle drums were sent around the village and soon I felt a blanket of warmth was wrapped around me. On that evening Chearsley Church became alive with bells music and candles it was amazing. I thank you all, I can’t tell you how much it has helped me come to terms with my loss and be positive. The cards that have been dropped through my door have been beautiful with such well chosen words.

All I can say in answer is that whatever Keith has invested in the village, he has reaped tenfold from the village. He wouldn’t have wanted to live anywhere else and I certainly wouldn’t ! From last October when Keith first became ill I have been overwhelmed with kindness and thoughtfulness and nothing seemed to much trouble, I didn’t need to ask, things just happened to help.

The climax came with Keith’s Thanksgiving Service. Once again a most beautifully decorated  St Nicholas church came alive with music, beautiful readings and well chosen words followed by a happy gathering in our village hall. Keith would have loved it all. The day culminated in the most glorious peal of bells ringing out over the whole village. They were amazing and to add icing on the cake the sun came out so we could stand outside to listen to them.

So many people helped so much to make the day so very special.

To all those wonderful people who have helped me in so many ways to make everything flow happily along may I say a very big  “THANK YOU “

Don't forget that tomorrow, this door will be open and you can climb the ancient steps, squeeze through the little door, and step out onto the roof of the tower to try and spot your house. Then climb back down, enjoy a slice of cake and learn all about the history of the church and our village.
