Farewell Jacqui

The funeral of Mrs. Jacqui Danter was held at St. Mary's Parish Church on Tuesday 24th May at 2 pm to which she was carried in a flower laden, horse-drawn bier. Family, close friends and staff waited outside the already packed church until eight family pall bearers carried Jacqui into the building. These were her son Richard Danter, her brother, Harry Dilley, Brother-in-law James Whittingham, nephews Jason Whittingham, Henry James Dilley, Lee and Craig Danter and her cousin Bobby Foster. Over six hundred people attended the service, which was led by the Reverend John Hunnisett.

During the service a tribute was made by Jacqui's sister-in-law Katie Stanwell, who told of Jacqui's life growing up with the travelling fair. A eulogy was later given by close family friend and Ross Town Mayor Gordon Lucas in which he also comforted staff by reminding them that Jacqui had regarded them all as her family.

A burial service was held at St. Dubricious Church at Whitchurch where, as Jacqui was being taken out of the bier., two air force jets flew by, almost as if to order as a mark of respect for this remarkable lady.

After the service, a wake was held in the ballroom at the Chase hotel. In the room was a large display board filled with photographs of Jacqui through all stages of her life. Pictures of her as a little girl through to being draped in tinsel at Christmas to entertain her grandchildren Tara and Henry.

Lots of happy memories of Jacqui were shared by those who attended and she will be sadly missed.

Around the Schools

Teacher, Julie Richards from JKHS visited Goodrich Primary on Wednesday, 25th May for a special crafts lesson. Pupils at the school are each making a clay model of a structure in Goodrich. The end result will hopefully be a model of the village as seen from the air.

Clair Milinczuk of the Hereford Music Pool also visited Goodrich Primary during the week, assisting year four pupils with their joint school 'Carnival' project. Primary schools in Goodrich, Whitchurch, Walford, Llangrove, St. Weonards and Ashfield Park in Ross are involved in the 'Carnival' project which is based on Brazilian carnival music. This will culminate with a 'Carnival' taking place at the Larruperz Centre on Friday 17th June.
