It is with much sadness that I wish to inform you of the death of former Senior Divisional Officer Peter Shilton aged 73, on the 8th October 2019.
Peter’s funeral will take place at St James church in Tytherington, South Gloucestershire on Wednesday 30th October at 11am. The service will be followed by a family burial in the church yard. Attendees are welcome to join the family and Simon in the Swan pub in Tytherington after the service. Peter has asked for family flowers only and should anyone wish to do so, to make a donation to cancer research in his name.
