Vale Norman Bennett

We were saddened to learn that Current School Grandparent Norman Bennett passed away on Sunday 25 April 2021. Norman was a lay minister and in this capacity, covered the Chaplain’s role in the past at Westminster from time to time. Our thoughts are with Norman’s wife Val and family, including grandson Fin (Year 12) and Old Scholar Sam Bolch (’05).
