Letters: Joe Garratt

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of one of our oldest residents of Nether Heyford

Joe Garratt passed away on the 18th November aged 97

A former member of Heyford Home Guard, during WW2. Joe married his wife Joan in Nether Heyford and they recently celebrated over 70 years of married life living in the village. They married at Nether Heyford Church and they lived in a cottage in Labrams Yard in Church Street when Joe returned from Army service in the Sudan and Joan worked in the war effort making aircraft parts for the Lancaster Bombers in the St James area of Northampton. They then settled into a house in Close Road and brought up a family and continued to enjoy village life.

He will be sadly missed by wife Joan, daughters Linda and Eunice and all his family and friends
