01.01.1969 - 20.05.2020
It is with regret and sadness that we learnt last week of the passing of John Mardel 'Jonty' who attended the Centre for many years. John had attended the Centre from its start back in 1986 and his family were active in helping form the Centre into what it is today. John was a much loved Service User who was liked by all and his cheeky smile and finger wagging will be missed by all.
Our thoughts and sympathy go to his loving mum Liz and his loving sisters Lucy and Kate.
If you have any memories and photos of John that you would like to share with his family you can do so via the website link below.
Donations in lieu of flowers can also be made via the same website.
Although John's funeral will be a private event due to current guidelines if you would like virtually celebrate his life, his family would love for you to join them via the link below on Thursday 4th June at 2.30pm.
