Dudley Gentle

Dudley Gentle moved to Pirton with his wife Liz in July 1968 and were the first occupants of 30, Bunyan Close. The following year he joined the reformed Cricket Club of which he is still an active member. During the past 30 years he has been a member of the Pirton Parish Council, the Recreation Ground Committee, the Parent Teacher Association and an active member of Pirton Players. He and Liz moved to 3, Shillington Road in April 1979 by which time they had three children, all of whom went to the village school.

One of his hobbies is woodwork which resulted in Dudley being asked to help construct the support structure, along with Cyril, Barrie and Graham. He was responsible for much of the woodwork and the supply of the angle-iron bases.

In the all the years Dudley has lived in Pirton he has always found it a most sociable and active village, resulting in lots of good friends
