JOHN WILLIS – “THE VOICE”

It has just come to our attention that John Willis passed away earlier this month.

John had been part of the local Point-to-Point scene for as long as I can remember and had a long term association with the Croome and West Warwickshire meeting at Ryalls Court as well as Chaddesley Corbett and Maisemore Park. He will be greatly missed.

“From the family of JOHN WILLIS, whom we sadly lost recently.

We have been overwhelmed by the love and support we have received over the past couple of weeks.

Dad’s funeral will take place at 13:00 on Thursday 26th September at Powick Church.

Following the service family will attend a private committal at The Vale Crematorium and will return to The Boathouse in Upton for the wake from 14:00. Please do join us for this if you are able to.


We would like to request family flowers only but if anybody wishes to make a donation in dad’s memory these will go to The Worcester Oncology Unit and the Midlands Air Ambulance, two charities close to his heart.

Donations will be handled by Bedwardine Funeral Services (The Coach House, 30 Bromyard Road, Worcester, WR2 5BT. 01905 748811).


We hope to see many of Dad’s friends on the 26th and if we don’t know you personally please do make yourself known to us on the day.”
