Following recent practice, a copy of the Christopher Baker Tribute was placed on the Simpson War Memorial this morning, together with a posy of flowers prepared by Pamela Lambourne from the Simpson Britain in Bloom group.

The text of the tribute can also be found on the Simpson & Ashland Parish website:

A fuller account of Christopher Baker and his family will be added to the website shortly.  I am very grateful to Ruth McCracken and Shirley Jones for their help in researching the details of his short life.
