Sad news. Ted Chapman, who spent the majority of his life – passionate and active – on behalf of Cornwall, the Environment, and Social Justice, died at his home in Falmouth early on the 13th October.
The funeral will take place on Saturday 23rd October at 11.00 a.m. at Penmount Crematorium, Truro and afterwards at Truro Rugby Club, St Clements Hill, Truro TR1 1NY. Family Flowers only, Cornish dress welcome.
Ted had been ill for some years but never stopped campaigning and informing, as well as documenting Cornish and environmental events on film. He was at the Transition Falmouth 10/10/10 event at Trevone on the Sunday before he died and while there produced a 20 min video of the land and the projects.
Ted filmed and produced an excellent video of Roberto Perez’s talk for Transition Falmouth in September 2008, as well as filming two Transition Cornwall Network events in dialogue with Cornwall Council at County Hall, and producing a short video of Falmouth’s Community Alive Event in May this year.
He also produced the video clips of the Footsteps to Copenhagen events last November – see here on this site – also on his You Tube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/golowva along with many other community videos, and on the video pages on the Gorsedh Kernow website.
There is a handsome tribute to Ted on the Gorsedh Kernow website.
He will be fondly remembered and greatly missed.
