Following the sad passing of respected local gentleman Geof Harrington, David Evans has kindly sent me details of the funeral arrangements to share with you all, via Geof’s old pal and writing partner, Bill Mayo.
My sympathies and condolences remain with Geof’s family and friends: Geof was a true father of Brownhills and the outpouring of grief and sympathy for his loss has been both extraordinary and touching.
The arrangements are as follows:
Wednesday 24 November 2021, at 11 a.m. there will be a funeral service at St. James Church, Brownhills.
There will be outdoor loudspeakers relaying proceedings for those who are unable to be inside the church.
The funeral cortege led by black horses and carriage will form a procession from the Miner Island, along Brownhills High Street to Brickiln Street, turning left to Short Street and then right to Church Road and thence to the church itself.
Cremation will take place at Heath Hays Crematorium at 12.30pm.
A wake will be held at Brownhills memorial Hall following for those who have attended the funeral.
Thanks to all involved: It will be a fine send-off for a much-loved and respected man.
Rest in peace, Geof.
