Keith Turnbull

The community of Chearsley was devastated to hear of the recent passing of Keith Turnbull. Although resident in the village for just a few years, Keith and Sara made a huge contribution to life in our village in so many wonderful ways.

Sara and her family have now finalised their plans for the celebration of Keith’s life. A funeral service will take place at St Nicholas Church, starting at 1pm on Thursday 28th March.

This will be followed by a reception with refreshments at the Village Hall from 2pm.

If it does not prove possible to seat all those attending within the church itself, an outdoor speaker will broadcast the service live for the benefit of those outside the church and some shelter and chairs will be located in the churchyard for those who are unable to be accommodated within the church itself.

In addition, for those unable to attend but wishing to be part of the celebration, the service will be livestreamed via online platform, Zoom. The joining instructions will be announced ahead of the day itself.

Sara and her family would like all those who knew Keith to participate in the celebration of his life.

However, unsurprisingly, they do ask that available seats in the church should go to Keith’s family members first and foremost and then his close friends, especially those who have travelled some distance to join the celebration.
