A GROUP of Newton-le-Willows residents have launched a fundraiser to set up a memorial bench for a known deceased neighbor.

Lloyd Crescent’s Ste Richard Glover has passed away recently at the age of 70.

His neighbor Ang Baldwin was devastated by Ste’s death and determined to ensure her “dear friend” was remembered.

The two met while walking their dogs, Milo and Ferret, and became instant friends.

Ang said: “I met Ste and Ferret about five years ago. Our friendship grew from there as we used to go for walks and chat while walking the dogs.

“Ferret would not let him rest and required that he walk about 10 times a day, which is why Ste met a lot of the community while he was walking so much.

“He always said he loved walking into Earlestown and sitting on the benches outside of Wilko and watching the world go by.

“Everyone knew Ste and his dog; he was the community around us to me as many people said he helped them.

“He was always asking about you and how your life was, so he was a shoulder and an ear for many locals; he loved being a big part of the community.

“He liked to laugh, smile and sometimes tease you with his schoolboy sense of humour.

“I classified him as my dear friend.”

Following his split from his partner during lockdown and the death of his daughter, Ste’s walks became much more important to him.

Ang described him as “a friend to turn to” as the neighbors regularly met for coffee and a chat.

Ste’s impact on Ang’s life made her determined to pay tribute to him after his death, and other locals joined her on her mission.

Ang added: “So me and Michelle Davies and her family, who is also a good neighbor and friend of Ste’s, came up with the idea of ​​honoring him with a bench at his favorite place to walk, The Dingle Common, for all his Friends can stay still chat and think about him.

“He deserves to be remembered by the community. He will be sorely missed by many, rest in peace Ste.”

A funeral date for Ste has yet to be arranged.
