Barrie Fairhead passed away yesterday, 7th March.
It was a chance meeting in the village square with Barrie in August 2007 that spurred us on to buying the little house in Le Grand-Pressigny. We were dithering and he encouraged and supported us through the buying process and the early years. If we hadn’t met, the moment would have passed and we might not be living in this lovely part of France now.
Barrie was a great character and a good friend, a warm hearted Yorkshireman and he loved his life in France. Our lives were enriched by knowing him and we will miss him.
