On Friday, we said a final goodbye to our dear friend Bernie. His ashes were laid to rest in Efford Cemetery, Plymouth; a lovely plot overlooking Dartmoor. A permanent plaque will replace the temporary stone. The small service was attended by June, her daughter Debbie with her husband, June’s sister and her husband and their daughter. The Band was represented by Mike Griffiths, Ray Lloyd and Kevin and Caroline Cunningham. A very informal service took place with Ray saying a few words to mark the sad occasion. Below is a picture of the spot with the Bandperson of the Year Cup, which Bernie proudly won on the last occasion it was presented.
