Story

Jim Penny of Shirehampton once led a life of depression he broke away from and found empowerment he turned his life around working through grit and determination instead for the cause of keeping a community field going by maintaining it keeping chickens and growing veg he encouraged others to do the best they could and do the same..he was an inspirational clever man always willing to do things but he suffered COPD and frontal lobe damage he coped amazingly with both. At 71 years of age he tried his best to support a community agriculture project he had worked voluntarily on for 9 years with his devoted wife working relentlessly. Prevention of the land being sold for housing being his main motivation they made a team creating a place of wildlife instead. He won a green volunteers award. He was a character of strength determination known locally for his efforts and the capability of bringing out the best in people. He died suddenly overnight his family unprepared for his loss desperately seek help paying for his funeral giving him a good send off. He leaves behind his wife grandchildren and children who are heartbroken.. http://www.facebook.com/Tyningsfieldcommunitygroup

    Jim was always working in the field to his best ability he never gave up. Despite suffering COPD he kept going. Inspiration. Motivation. Belief in a God of his understanding. Encouraged others ..he worked with ..the Autistic Association..he worked with various rehabs. ..he helped a local school do their project. He made a field seem interesting..vibrant ..and put ancient Tynings field on a modern day map.

    So sorry to hear about Jimmy. I knew Jimmy as a friend of a friend. However Jimmy liked me and he always seemed to make me laugh with his jokey personality and warmth and kindness.

    I don’t know Jim very well. I spoke to him while working near where you live. He use to make me chuckle with his humour. A good character. Sorry for your loss. I hope this will help.
