Peter Battle - BBC East.
Apr 5th, 2019, 7:06pm
 
There cannot be anyone who worked at St. Catherine’s Close, the imposing home of BBC East in Norwich until 2003, who doesn’t remember Peter Battle. Sadly Peter died on Sunday 31st March just short of his 100th birthday. How delighted he would have been to have received a card from the Queen.

In addition to being our gardener for forty-four years he was also a loyal and much loved member of the BBC East ‘family’. His horticultural skills once included draping the front of St. Catherine’s in hanging baskets which won ‘Norwich in Bloom’ awards. Peter, together with his late wife Janet, were also keen supporters of the BBC East Club from its inception (circa 1960) until it closed after the move to the Forum.


Peter’s funeral will be held at 11am on Wednesday April 17th at Earlham Crematorium, Earlham Road, Norwich NR2 3RG.
