As many readers will be aware, Henry Morphew sadly passed away at the beginning of this year. Henry had been a resident of the village for over 50 years. He loved the village of Bildeston and wished to support it after his death. Henry made a will that sought to preserve the historical records that he had compiled over many years and look after some of the artefacts he had collected.  He also wished to provide financial support for a number of local amenities.

Henry had stated that he wanted the Parish Council to administer his will.  In order to do this, the Parish Council has engaged a legal adviser to assist with the administration of Henry’s estate so that Henry’s bequests may be allocated in accordance with his wishes. Further details will appear in the Parish Council minutes over the coming months.
