This will be followed by refreshments at The George at Nunney.

Cremation will take place at Haycombe Cemetery & Crematorium, Whiteway Road, Bath BA2 2RQ at 3.15pm. Anyone who wishes may attend.

There will be a memorial service later in the year in All Saints Church Nunney, where a collection will take place for the Nunney Church Raise the Roof Appeal.

Colin Cross performed in many productions by the Nunney Players. The group performed his play The Canterbury Road Tales in November 2015.

He also served on the Nunney & District Flower Show committee for many years. The committee will provide flowers for the Requiem Mass.

Colin lived in Nunney for most of his adult life and celebrated his 79th birthday with friends and villagers in The George only weeks ago.

Known for his mischievous wit, he delighted visitors to the Easter Sunday Bonnet Parade & Duck Race a few years ago by appearing dressed as Eeyore alongside Jeff Smith as Winnie the Pooh – and playing Pooh Sticks on Nunney bridge together.
