Well-known arts supporter Gordon Chapman, who served on many arts bodies including the 1820 Foundation in Grahamstown, died last week.

“I was so sad to hear about Gordon's death,” says Lynette Marais, former Festival Director of the National Arts Festival: “I have very fond memories of him and Gladys who gave me so much support when I first started working at the Festival. Gordon was a real gentleman with a lovely smile and great sense of humour. My deepest sympathy to Gladys and family at this sad time.”

The notice of the memorial service which was held on June 24 requested, in lieu of flowers, donations to St Agnes Church's Philangethemba Outreach Programme. More information bank details, etc. on 031 764 2037.
