It is with great regret and sadness that we have to announce that Peter Sharples died this morning in hospital. Peter had been involved in Scouting for many years and in various different roles most recently as the last chairman of the Bedford District Scout Fellowship before becoming the first District Scout Active Support Unit in the UK. He was also a longterm member of the Service Crew at Jordans Close.
Speaking this evening, local District Commissioner, Graeme Watt said,
Peter had been very ill in recent months but did come and see the slip way at Jordans Close which now carries his name.
I am sure that everyone in Bedford Scouts will share their thoughts, sympathies and prayers with Peter’s wife Sheila and the all the family.
When further information about the arrangements is known, we will post it.
