As many of you are slowly finding out, Gillian Wiggle the Landlady of our pub, the Galphay Inn, sadly passed away over the weekend. It was a great shock to all of us.
Details of Gillian's funeral will be made available in the pub and on the village website.
Chris Duke has kindly offered a few words and photographs below.
We are all very sad over the passing of Gillian at the young age of 49 following a short illness.
Gillian came to Galphay almost six years ago and breathed life into the Galphay Inn, turning it into a true local pub with an excellent reputation for food.
Gillian started running pubs after training in hospitality, becoming the youngest landlady in England when she took over the Spotted Cow in Malton, North Yorkshire.
Gillian also ran the Henry Jenkins in Kirkby Malzeard once again turning it into a popular local venue.
From there Gillian joined Harrogate Borough Council before returning to her true vocation at the Galphay Inn.
In the last couple of years Gillian also fostered young children again making a positive difference to their lives and experiences.
Gillian leaves two daughters, Emma and Zoe and three grandchildren, Edward, Oliver and Benjamin.
Our thoughts and sympathy are with them and the remainder of her family.
