it is with sadness that we have to pass on the news that Richard J Albone has recently passed away. He will be known to many residents of Newport Pagnell as he used to run the green grocers and florist in the High Street in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s!! He was a founder member of the Carnival committee and the Xmas Lights and a member of the NP Chamber of Trade for many years. His funeral will be held on Thursday 28th June at 3pm at St Peter and St Paul Church in Newport Pagnell. The family will welcome anyone who remembers him. He was very much a part of Newport Pagnell and without people like him starting things all those years ago we wouldn’t have the carnival or the Christmas lights display both of which are enjoyed by so many every year. Any enquiries to Masons in the High Street.
