Easterton Parish Council in 1997

We believe this photo was taken to mark the 90th birthday of Tom Jefferies.

Easterton Parish Council celebrate Tom Jefferies 90th birthday

Tom is the man seated in front. He certainly doesn’t look as old as 90 – perhaps the result of a fit and active life.

But he was born in Urchfont in 1907 (or Erchfont as his father wrote it on the 1911 census). For a long time this man – carpenter and builder – could have been called Mr Easterton. He died a couple of years after the photo was taken in 1999.

The other people in the photo (from left to right) are Sue Allen, not known, June Jones, Susan Deegan, Tony Doyle, Ray Kelsey and Keith Jensen.

It’s good to report that many of these people are still active in local life. Two of them volunteer as museum stewards.

And we are able to keep a record of the Parish Council for Easterton from 1997 which is 18 years ago as this is written.

  1. Jjohn Burgess Says:

    Pat and I lived next to Tom who as said was Mr Easterton, pencil in his mouth. I asked once why the pencil? on all accounts Tom used to smoke and missed the fag in his mouth and so the pencil replace the fag.

Can you add anything to this or do you want to know more?
