PETER JOHN MANNING A service of thanksgiving for the life of Peter John Manning, who passed away on Saturday, April 17th in Nightingale House Hospice, was held at Tallarn Green Methodist Church on Friday April 23rd.

He married Doreen Davies in 1962 and they farmed there until retiring to The Smithy in 1998. They had two sons and a daughter and six grandchildren. Special tributes were given by David Paton, Rev. David Hudson and his daughter Hazel. His youngest granddaughter Joanna read a special poem which Peter had requested. In his farming interests Peter was Maelor NFU Chairman, County NFU Chairman and a Committee member of the former MMB.
