Sadly I have to report that his daughter has advised me of the sudden death of John Foort of Hatton Warwickshire aged 72. John and his wife Rosemary were well known on the Gloucestershire circuit. They stood at Churchdown since its inception and at Ken Fergusons fairs prior to that, as well as at Kinver for many years.
Experts on Observers, Wayside and Woodland and Children’s books, many folk bought their first book from them as they were always reasonably priced and had the stock.
John and Rosemary were at Churchdown on Sunday and so I am surprised and saddened to be writing this, he will be missed.
For those who knew him the Funeral will be at St Michaels Church, Claverdon on the 20th of January at 11 am and afterwards at the Falcon Inn. Phill Robbins 01926494368
