John Skrimshire memorial bench

Memorial bench for past-chair of GMPRG

A memorial bench dedicated to John Skrimshire (1941-2016) has been installed close to the Pocket Park on the Buryfield, Great Missenden, where John used to enjoy times with his grandchildren.

John, who lived with his wife Angela in Crown House on the High Street for many decades, was Chairman of Great Missenden and Prestwood Revitalisation Group (GMPRG) and Committee member of Great Missenden Village Association (GMVA).  He was a member of the parish council for many years and in his capacity as resident and as a planning lawyer was much involved in protecting and influencing many aspects of village life and development, which he always did with a great sense of fun. He is sorely missed. The making and installation of the bench has been funded jointly by GMPRG and GMVA.
