Family and friends of a former military veteran who died earlier in the year gathered together to pay a special tribute to a “cheeky chap who did anything for anyone”.

A plaque in memory of Colner Peter (Pedro) Valentine was unveiled in his local pub, The Duke of Lancaster, over the weekend.

Organised by his friend and ex-colleague Nick Thompson, the commemorative sign is a way of honouring Mr Valentine for the 12 years of service he completed between 1971 and 1983. The former Tackler’s Club steward died suddenly in September, at the age of 60.
