A Weston woman is hoping some former Weston army cadets will be able to come and pay their respects to her late father, who spent decades with the organisation.

Jane Coopey’s father, Roy Schofield, died aged 86. He had been part of the army cadets since the 1970s and she said he ‘did a lot for them’ over the years. His funeral will take place on Wednesday at Weston Crematorium at 11.15am.
