D.W.S. Gray

Sadly David Gray, long-standing editor of the Cherryburn Times, died on Friday 3rd April after a short spell in hospital. David's passing has been a great shock to family and friends and our thoughts are with them at this time.

David transformed the newsletter of the Bewick Society to a Journal; he inaugurated the Bewick Society website and was a constant presence at Bewick Society events and meetings. An engaging public speaker, in private he was charming, generous and inspiring to colleagues and friends. The Bewick Society shall be much poorer without him. 

David's funeral will be on Friday 24th April at the West Road Crematorium, commencing at 2.45 pm and ending at 3.15.

A celebration of his life will be held in the central library of The Literary and Philosophical Society on Westgate Road later the same day beginning at 5 pm and finishing around 8pm.
