Laurie’s family made this announcement of his funeral –
“Laurie’s funeral will take place at Holy Rood Church, Stubbington, PO14 2AS on Friday 18th August at 1130, the service is open to all.
Parking is very limited at the church and in the village so please arrive early as you may need to walk to the church. Traffic may be heavy in the area due to the first arrival of HMS QUEEN ELIZABETH into Portsmouth between 17th and 22nd August. Please be seated by 1115 and we kindly ask only older children attend if appropriate.
Although not compulsory, military personnel are invited to wear No.1 uniform (medal, no swords). Please do not bring flowers. Light refreshments will be served after the service.”
Please leave the parking around Holy Rood Church for family and those with limited mobility and don’t park outside the church on Gosport Road. There are public car parks at the junction of Burnt House Lane and Gosport Road and by the Community Centre off Stubbington Lane; both are a five minute walk to Holy Rood.
