A group of ‘Shedders’ greeted  the hearse, his wife Lesley and immediate family

We formed a line along the route as they approached the Waterside Chapel at Westerleigh Crematorium.

The Morris Minor van displayed our link with Steven and I hope was much appreciated by all.

Two ‘Yate Men’s Shed’ members joined the family for the service in the chapel afterwards.

Steven Ring passed away on 29th March 2021.

Today (29th April 2021) we paid our respects by forming a ‘Guard of Honour’ in the open air at Westerleigh Crematorium. His burial followed the service at the same venue.
