Peter Oxenham

The funeral for Peter Oxenham was held on Monday 1 June 2015.  The following eulogy was included in the Order of Service.

"Peter Oxenham was born in Houghton-le-Spring County Durham on 8 March 1948 the younger of twins.  He attended a local Grammar School and went on to complete an apprenticeship in Engineering.  Peter began his career as a draughtsman turning ideas into concrete plans, earning a reputation for his attention to detail and problem solving skills.  This proved to be just the beginning in a long and successful career as a Design and Chemical Engineer."

"Peter met Joan in May 1970, romance blossomed and they were married in July 1972.  Together they moved to London and settled in Harrow.  In 1989 the family expanded with the arrival of their daughter Lucy.  In later years he was also adopted by the cat, who followed him everywhere."

Programme Refresh Roadshow Materials

The GLMW Programme Refresh Roadshow is off and running. Participants attending the roadshow have said that they have found it both fun and informative and have taken away many new ideas for use in their programme planning and activities.

You can find the detail of the programme refresh from the Scout Association at the new programme website. On the roadshow days, we have had much discussion about how we turn the framework of the programme as written on the website and in the new publications in to a workable solution for us here in GLMW with the many different influences and challenges that we face in our metropolitan environment.

If you haven't been along to one of the roadshow events yet, then why not check the County Diary for the next event at a location near you. The day is sponsored by your DCs and the aim is to bring it to every District in the County.

Attached below are the resources and materials that Richard Williams and the team have been using on the GLMW Programme Refresh Roadshow.

The funeral service for Bernard Frank Archer was held on Monday 16 February 2015 at Wealdstone Methodist Church.

In the Tribute at the Funeral Service, Bernard was described as a dependable and trustworthy person who had a well-spent life of great service who would be missed by a great number of people in Harrow.

Bernard was born in Wealdstone on 10 September 1927 and attended Sundayschool at Wealdstone Methodist Church as this meant he did not need to cross the main road to Holy Trinity Church where his parents worshipped.  When he was older he attended Holy Trinity Church, was a choirboy and an active member of the church.

He was a Wolf Cub in the 10th Harrow which met at Holy Trinity and then moved to 6th Harrow where he continued as a member for the rest of his life.
