The village has suffered some great losses in recent months and sadly we must tell you that again, another village gentleman has lost his fight with Cancer.
Andrew Higgins passed away recently after a courageous fight at the age of just 54. Andy will be remembered by many (including myself) as the man with the HUGE dog! Bailey (the huge dog) sadly crossed over the rainbow bridge just a few weeks before Andy passed.
Due to the current restrictions in place on gatherings, only family and very close friends are permitted to attend the funeral. The family have asked that if you wish to pay your respects to Andy that perhaps you would like to line the street outside of his home.
Andy's funeral will take place on Tuesday November 3rd and is expected to leave his home of 4 Corby Road, Weldon at 11.30am.
We at WVO send our deepest condolences to all the family for which it has been a very difficult time.
