A memorial service for former Guild member Edward Hart will take place on Saturday, 7 March, in Shropshire.
Edward passed away in 2011 but Rosemary Hart has contacted the Guild after organising the event to celebrate his life.
She said: “Edward was the only member of the BGAJ to take an interest in the heavy horse. That’s how I came to meet him, and for some years he was the best partner I ever had. He took me with him when he was working on books about sheep, especially his book about hefting, and I used to type manuscripts for him.
“Edward had a tiny private funeral that left many people wishing they could attend a service in his memory. I never discovered such a service, so decided to organise one myself.”
The service will take place at 12pm at St John the Baptist Church, Brampton Road, Bishop’s Castle, Shropshire. SY9 5AF
Rosemary has asked if those planning to attend could let her know in advance on email.
