Many residents have been saddened to hear that Peter Northall-Laurie died on Monday 26 January, aged 94. The photo is of Peter and his late wife Joy on a wedding anniversary - we believe the 35th, when she gave him the number plate PNL35Y.
After serving in the Army in WWII, Peter joined a well-known discount bank in the City of London, becoming Company Secretary (in the days when they still wore top hats). He was a common councillor of the Court of Common Council in the City of London for many years - his name appears in a list as early as 1976. He was Master of the Saddlers Company 1980/81, and he was Chairman of the Central Markets Committee as recently as 1991. The funeral will be held at St. Michael's, Bray, at 1.00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 24.
