Thanksgiving for Neville

Many people will have fond memories of Neville Jennings, who passed away in January. There will be a Thanksgiving Service at Downton Baptist Church on Monday 5 September at 2:15pm, open to all who wish to attend. 


Amongst the many and varied activities that Neville was involved in, he was the site manager at the Moot for 22 years up to 2015. He has a special place for us at InDownton because he delivered the newsletter from the beginning in 2005 right up until two years ago. Neville was involved in many village organisations as well as the Moot. He was on the committee which procured the funding and organised the building of the Leisure Centre in Wick Lane and was a stalwart of the Baptist Church for many decades.

Before he retired, he was a successful businessman running toy shops including what became The Entertainer in Blue Boar Row.
