Marldon Local History Group is dedicated to the promotion and study of the history of the Parish through the collection and preservation of archival material


TONY CHIDLOW. 07 February 1941 – 12 January 2022

It is with much sadness that I have to report the passing away of our long serving member TONY CHIDLOW today, 12th January.

Tony was a founder member of the Marldon Local History Group back in 2001 and served in all positions on the Committee from Treasurer, Secretary and until very recently as Chairman, having taken over that last role in 2012.

I think I can speak for all our Members when I say that if it wasn’t for Tony’s dedication to the Group it would not have survived in its current state today and we will all sorely miss him.

Our thoughts are very much with his beloved wife Sylvia and daughter Samantha, along with all their family members at this very sad time.

Our New President & Lady President

Tony & Sylvia Chidlow

In recognition of the endless hours both Tony & Sylvia Chidlow have devoted to the Marldon Local History Group the members elected at their Special General Meeting in December 2021 to make Tony Group President and Sylvia Lady President

Sadly Tony has been suffering with ill health recently and has had to step back from his duties as Chairman I am sure you will all join with us in thanking him for his many years of service to the group, he recently sent this letter to our members.
