Gresford Trust

Run by the village for the village

Welcome to Gresford Trust!

It is with deep sadness that we report the passing of our Chairman, Bill Barker, who died peacefully at the Wrexham Maelor Hospital on the sixth of February.

Having worked in the insurance business in Yorkshire for some 40 years, Bill moved into this area in 1991 and became an enthusiastic and committed member of the Gresford Bowls Club where he soon volunteered to cut the greens saving the club over one thousand pounds a year. Following giving so much of his time to the Bowls Club he was elected chairman in 2010 where he presided over the purchasing of new equipment and the building of the new and impressive pavilion.

In 2011 he became a Trustee of the Gresford Trust where he gave generously of his time and became Chairman of the Trust in 2014 where he rapidly made his mark. His hard work, his sound advice and his engaging personality will be sadly missed and we extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Brenda and the family in their great loss, our thoughts go with them at this sad time.
