A note from Mark, brother of popular youth worker Daz Bretel who passed away suddenly at The Factory Youth Centre in Longbridge last December:
I am delighted to be able to announce that the memorial bench, which has been made by Birmingham City Council from the donations greatly received at Daz’s funeral and wake, is now in place.
The bench has been installed in a tranquil place up the Beacon in Rednal.
The Lickeys and Beacon were Daz’s, he loved this place.
This has only been made made possible by the work put in by Andy and Gemma Cartwright who have worked effortlessly to enable this to happen, we would like to thank those involved in organising and allowing this to happen.
On the sad 1st anniversary of our Daz’s death, we will be having a dedication service at 11am on 13/12/2014 up on the Beacon Hill. Rev Nick Jones has kindly agreed to attend to say a few words to dedicate the bench.
All those who knew him are welcome to attend.
Mark Bretel and family
