Bill Coggins

Bill and Carrie Coggins

It is with deep regret that we announce that our President and Committee Life member, Bill Coggins passed away this afternoon (Thursday 18th August 2016).

Bill has been a stalwart of our Carnival and a vice president of Marketeers Carnival Club.

He supported many other local groups in North Petherton. He was very active with the local scouts for many years, seen here mixing in his younger days, with The Queen and Prince Phillip.

P1301944.ORF He was often seen on a Saturday afternoon at North Petherton Rugby Club and wore his club waistcoat with pride.

He will be sadly missed and we send our sincere condolences to Carrie and all their family.

Bill’s funeral is to be held at 10:30 on Friday 2nd September in St Mary’s Church, North Petherton. All are very welcome to attend.
Afterwards there will be a wake at the Harvest Moon, North Newton.
