    Syliva had a great heart and such Community spirit opening the post office in her garage as she was worried about the elderly people in the village when the previous one closed. Myself and my children loved going in after school and always welcomed and she knew and cared for all the children. We all need a Syliva in our villages

    Condolences to Carla and the family – Sylvia was one of those rare people who made a real difference to many others’ lives. She, and her village shop, were one of the key pivots around which our village and community turned and she will be much missed.
    I can’t help but think she must be so cross at the enforced rest, as she was always one of the world’s workers.
    Our best wishes
    Karen and Nick Francis
