Bryan Beggs

Sadly Bryan Beggs has passed away. Bryan was a Test Valley Borough Councillor from 1973 to 1987, and Mayor in 1986/87. Such bare facts, however, do not do justice to the enormous contribution that Brian and his wife, Diana, made to the Borough. His book, ‘Testing Times’, is an eloquent witness to his commitment and energy on behalf of the people of Test Valley. That did not cease when he retired as a councillor, as exemplified by his tireless work with Andover Charity Trustees. His wonderful ‘Churches of Test Valley’ book will forever remind us of his determination, and his ability to succeed despite the odds being stacked against him. We would like to express our sincere condolences to Bryan’s wife, Diana.

Some of you will remember when Bryan came to the King’s Somborne Historical Society to talk about Test Valley Churches and I still have the signed copy of Testing Times that he gave me.
