Gresford Trust

Run by the village for the village

Welcome to Gresford Trust!

Mr Vivian Davies 17.05.1926 - 13.11.2014

Viv Davies is remembered with great affection by members of Gresford Trust.


Friends and fellow Trustees were informed at the November monthly meeting of the Trust, of the death earlier in the day of Viv Davies.


It was a sceptical Viv who joined the Trust in 1993 to serve on the committee as Trustee and Chairman, and from 1995 as Vice President.


Great changes were proposed to Trust property including a new Memorial Hall to a land rich, but cash poor charitable village organisation. The changes required co-operation between member organisations, vision and substantial funds. Viv played a significant role in achieving this goal.


Viv was a loyal and enthusiastic Trustee, not afraid to get his hands dirty and could turn his engineering skills to most jobs around the Trust grounds and buildings as well as helping serve refreshments to visiting football teams!


Viv's contribution to the Trust over many years was very much appreciated by Trustees, hirers and visitors.


Our condolences go to his family. The Trust misses him greatly.
