On Tuesday 22 December, a bench commissioned by Richard Garrett’s family and kindly donated by the Old Bedfordians Club, in honour of Richard’s memory, was unveiled at the Langham Pavilion. This was a particularly poignant date as it marks the two-year anniversary of Richard’s sad passing. Many of you will remember Richard during his time as Director of the Bedford School Association (2010-18).
The unveiling of the bench, which will reside on the pavilion steps, was toasted by Richard’s wife Emma and his five children (pictured here) and Hugh Maltby – current Director of the BSA.
At exactly the same time, Richard’s sister-in-law, his father and his niece, were unveiling another bench in memory of Richard at Eastbourne College where Richard attended school.
