Walter Lloyd - Loss of a Legend
We're very sorry to announce the death of local legend, and Coppice Association North West's President for 10 years, Walter Lloyd.
He has been an inspiration and good friend to all in CANW and beyond, always ready to share his vast knowledge and wonderful stories. He will be very much missed by a huge number of people.
We send thoughts and love to his family.
