Warm welcome for South Downs Funeral Service

The weather was cold and depressing outside but the official opening of South Downs Funeral Home in Clanfield, last Saturday, was warm and welcoming.  Representatives from the business community, local church, surgery, friends and supporters packed into the newly refurbished premises in Drift Road. It really was ‘standing room only’ for this joyous occasion!

The Mayor of Petersfield, Jamie Matthews, Reverend Canon Gill Hill and funeral celebrant Lisa Lane joined in the speeches of celebration and welcome to this successful local business making its home in the centre of the village.  Managing Director, Paul Lee-Bapty and his team were keen to show visitors around the funeral home and emphasise their commitment to serve our community to the highest standards. Several guests commented on how the interior design of the building, with its bright and uplifting décor, gave the funeral home a welcoming and friendly aspect.  There was also great interest in the sleek limousine and unusual motorbike hearse on display in the private parking area outside the building.  

Paul Lee-Bapty offered his thanks to Clanfield Online for their support in finding the right premises and setting up his business in the village. Clanfield Online strives to help all members, both business and community, promote their commitment to serve the people of this area.

South Downs Funeral Service is a local, independent and family owned business, with homes located in Clanfield, Denmead and Wickham serving the local communities.

Clanfield Online welcomes this new business to our village and area.
