Mr 'T'  Some sad news. Eric Thurman, Angela and Diane’s father passed away on Saturday night, peacefully at home following illness. He was 83. ‘Mr T’, as he was affectionately known by many, was Nans right hand man in starting up Turville Valley Stud and remained so for many years. Fondly remembered for whistling the ponies down from the hill on early mornings, driving the land rover full of eager headcollar armed children, taking the lead groups out on his bike shouting ‘up –down up-down’ as he ran the leaders legs off! So many memories. His funeral will take place at Turville Church on Thursday 12th February, 2pm.
