Matthew Gallagher

Posted on Mar 01, 2020

It is with huge sadness that we announce the very sudden death of Matthew Gallagher on 29th December, aged 46. Matthew was a director of Bowley and Gallagher Funeral Directors, Preston Road. Along with Paul Bowley he brought a refreshing and different insight into how he thought the modern day funeral directors premises should look and feel. He has certainly left his mark within this family business with our bright modern office, using colour and furnishings that compliment the building and company use.

SPELDHURST CHURCH & HEVER CASTLE

Posted on Jul 01, 2018

After leaving Brighton we will travel to Speldhurst near Tonbridge to see St Mary’s Church. This is at least the 3rd church built on the same site and contains a complete set of stain glass windows designed by the famous pre-Raphaelite artists Burne Jones and William Morris. For those who have been to see St Michael’s in Brighton you would be familiar with their and other pre-Raphaelite artist’s work. We will have a conducted tour by one of the church’s members. Hopefully we will be able to get a coffee in the George and Dragon pub opposite the Church and then we will have lunch at the Wheatshief at Bough Beech near Hever Castle. The pub dates back to Tudor times but was updated in the Georgian period.

Diamond: it’s tough, it’s long lasting, and it’s beautiful.

Showing toy trains: why do we do it?

Posted on Feb 01, 2018

I blame my father for starting it way back in 1951, when he visited Gamages of Holborn, now no more, but famous then for its toy department and model railway. His mission was to buy me, his train-fixated son, a train set for my third birthday. He chose a British made electrically powered set by Trix. My interest in Trix has somehow survived through all the other pre-occupations of childhood, growing up, adult life, and now retirement, though there were long periods when that interest was very much on the back burner.
