Les Pitt, former joint proprietor of “News and Things”

Longer-standing residents of the town, who remember the days when “News and Things” was owned and run by Les Pitt and Mike Mahoney, will be sad to learn of Les’s death recently in Somerset at the age of 75.

Les and Brenda with their young family were active members of the community (Les was also a retained firefighter), before they decided to move to Somerset in the early 1980s to run a village shop and tea room in Stogumber.

For further information or to send a message to the family, please contact Robert Collery at
