Ceremony for Norman Painting OBE

The ashes of Norman Painting OBE were scattered in a private ceremony in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, on Wednesday.

Norman, the actor who played Phil Archer in BBC Radio 4's The Archers for 60 years, died on 29 October 2009.

The ceremony took place in Painting's plantation, which was planted by The Tree Council in the grounds of the local school to honour Mr Painting on his 80th birthday. Mr Painting was Vice-President of The Tree Council.

The service was attended by a small number of family, friends, charities associated with the actor and representatives from the BBC and trees were planted in the actor's memory. The service was led by Canon Dr Christopher Lamb, a former Vicar of Mr Painting's village.

A memorial service for Norman Painting will be held later in the year.
