John Sydney Thomas 1916 to 2016

The Parish Council is sad to learn of the death of one its most hard working and popular former members. John Sydney Thomas, known to all as Jack, served the Parish Council of Wrockwardine from 23rd May 1961 until he demitted office in May 2000; he died just short of his 100th Birthday. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.

It is our understanding that there is to be a formal announcement in the Shropshire Star informing all that his funeral service is to be held at St. Peter’s Church, Wrockwardine at 11 o’clock on 28th January.
