Rest awhile with Ruth

A bench in memory of Ruth Cheadle has been installed at Swynnerton Village Hall.

Over 30 people including many members of the Cheadle family gathered for the September 27th blessing by Swynnerton parish priest Rev Fr Paul Chavasse.

In his homily, Fr Chavasse gave thanks for Ruth’s long life which was dedicated not only to her large family, but also the village of Swynnerton, and, though her work as a parish and borough councillor, the wider community as well.

Donated by Swynnerton Thursday Club, which Ruth founded in 1983, the bench offers views over the Meece valley and the walnut tree she planted nearby.
