Shopkeeper in Old Buckenham for many years

Remembering Bill
Bill Wardman, whom many people in the village will remember, passed away at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital on Monday 17 August. Bill was 90 and he was at his home in Old Buckenham until a week before. The funeral is on Monday 7 September at 2pm at the Breckland Crematorium. The hearse will be leaving from outside the village shop at 1.15pm. Anyone who would like to join Bill’s family briefly there should arrive by 1pm when the Revd Alistair Monkhouse will be saying some words and prayers. 
Bill and his late wife Cecilia moved to the village in 1964 and ran the shop for 26 years. 
Donations in memory of Bill, if desired, may be sent c/o Andy Free, Fairfields, High Street, Attleborough, Norfolk, NR17 2BT for All Saint’s Church Fund (cheques should be made payable to Andy Free Charity Account). 
If you have any memories of Bill that you would like to share with others then you can email them to the editor of the village newsletter at for possible inclusion in the October newsletter.
