How many times have you read an obituary and thought: "I only wish I knew that about them when they were alive"? So many talented people live in our community, but it's often only after they have died that the full picture comes out.

So, this is the page to visit to find out more about the lives of some of Brightwell-cum-Sotwell's more interesting characters. We will reprint obituaries found in the pages of The Villager but we have the privilege of being able to write at greater length, and with pictures. So if you'd like to send us your memories of people who have recently died, this is the place for them.

A cookie is a small file containing text and numbers generated by the website and passed from your browser back to our website when you revisit the site.

A cookie is used here to allow you to navigate the site, log in etc. Without this cookie (called a session cookie), this site would not work properly and so this has already been set.

We use an animation based rotating image which uses a cookie to know which image was last displayed so that as you move from page to page you are not seeing the same image every time.

We can also make use of third party services such as video clip players which can set cookies, for example to enable them to know that you part played a video clip previously, or to store customised settings such as brightness or volume. Close
