The Cherry Hinton Festival Committee are very sad to learn of the death of John Shepherd. John joined the Festival Day planning group in 2016 and then worked with the Festival Committee from 2017. John’s background was in construction and he had a wealth of experience which helped us with planning health and safety for the festival.
John was an excellent pub quizzer helping us to victory in the 2019 Festival Quiz Night with some impressive knowledge of Music Hall.
John always had an entertaining story or two of his adventures of working and living all around the world – including some hairy health and safety moments. The Festival and Cherry Hinton must have seemed very tame in comparison! John, if you’re listening, we’re pretty sure it’s not going to explode. But if it does, we’ll be thinking of you.
