Paul’s funeral was on Tuesday 10th January. The church was packed for a very moving service given by Peter Hallett, with tributes and music from family and friends. Paul’s testimony was surely the large number of people who turned up to say farewell. The text of the tribute to Paul Mann is available here.
Afterwards in the Half Moon, his favourite pub, there was a toast to Paul and a heartfelt rendition of “Always look on the Bright side of life”.
Last week was not a good week for funerals. The village also said goodbye to Elfriede Scharf and Bob McCreery.
