30 Aug


It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of David Lloyd a few weeks ago. He will be a huge loss to all those who were lucky enough to know him. He was a charming, enthusiastic, funny man who loved talking with people of any age. A great raconteur, Lloydy spent 6 years in The Welsh Guards and then 25 years at Lloyds. But, as was said at his lovely funeral, he should have been an actor!  He moved down to Cornwall in 1996 and became a wonderful part of our local community.  

He was my friend, and, like so many of you reading this, I think the world is poorer for his absence.  We will raise a beer, in a mug with a handle, at our next Trengilly Bridge game.  We lowered our flags to half mast when we heard the news which would have made him laugh.  “My dear boy!” he would have said.
