Richard Anthony Jenkinson - at school - small
UPDATE : Shortly before he died in July, Richard asked his family to organise a service later in the year for his family and friends. He was very specific that this must include good music, things to make us laugh and a glass of wine. So, that is what they are doing.

They very hope you will be able to join them - click here for more details
