A memorial service for John Stanley, who sadly passed away earlier this year, will take place on Thursday 19th September at Gainsborough Parish Church, at 1.00pm. John had lived in Gainsborough for nearly 60 years and played a huge role within the local community. He served on the local council for many years and was chairman of the council twice; the first time as the youngest chairman at only 28! He also served as a county councillor. Back in 1994 he was one of the founding members of Gainsborough Heritage Society and helped to set up the project. One of his great interests was the Model Railway Society as well as playing in Roses Hockey Club.
Anyone wishing to attend would be most welcome. Further details are available from John’s sister, Maureen Clough (nee Stanley), on 01909 550237.
