Les Truman: Sadly we heard the news too late for inclusion in this week’s printed newsletter that Les died on Thursday evening. Les was married to Tess who was, for many years, our choir mistress. Although a member of the choir at St John the Evangelist, he was always ready to add his fine Welsh voice to support our choir on special occasions. Please remember him, Tess and all the Truman family in your prayers.
