A fantastic turn-out to say goodbye to a real man of Heyford.
I'm delighted to report that today several members of Heyford Cricket Club were able to attend the funeral service for Club Patron Alan Hillyard. It was a testament to the man that the chapel was full to bursting, with family and friends all turning up to say goodbye.
Alan will be missed, and our thoughts are with his family.
Thanks to the very generous donations from those associated with the Club we were able to make a donation of £200 to the British Heart Foundation. I have since received further donations which I will continue to collect and forward to Alan's chosen charity.
