The founder of a popular Hampstead Garden Suburb newsletter has passed away, aged 79.
Richard Wakefield, who founded quarterly newsletter Suburb News in 1983, died after a long illness last Thursday.
The former chairman of Hampstead Garden Suburb Residents Association (HGSRA), who lived with his wife Jocelyne in Hampstead Way, had completed the latest edition of Suburb News the day before his death.
Jonathan Seres, current chairman of HGSRA, said: “He was dedicated to good design and created a brand for the residents association which still continues.”
A thanksgiving service in memory of Mr Wakefield takes place at St Jude’s Church, the Suburb, on Tuesday at 3pm.
