Bill Liddiard, obit 13th January 2022
We are sorry to report that Bill died on 13th January 2022 after a short illness. He had been a churchwarden since 2016. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to his wife Trish, their three children, Sally, Kate and Jim, and their grandchildren.
Bill was a dairy farmer in North Hampshire with a herd of pedigree Holsteins. He subsequently worked part-time for Muller and Marks & Spencer helping dairy farmers who supply them with milk. Bill and Trish met through the Young Farmers movement. They moved from Hampshire to Tisbury in 2013 and quickly immersed themselves in church and village life. Bill was appointed as a churchwarden in 2016 – a position he held to the end. He was also Chairman of the Hinton Hall Committee
I moved to Tisbury with my wife Christina in 1986. I am a keen bell-ringer locally, across the Diocese and beyond. I have also been Honorary Secretary of the Salisbury Diocesan Guild of Ringers since 1995.
As well as serving as a Churchwarden, I am chairman of the church’s Fabric Committee, taking responsibility for making sure the church remains in good repair.
I am now semi-retired and still do some hours at my accountancy firm based in Tisbury High Street but continue to be involved with the local community.
