Welcome to Cheese-Rolling in Gloucestershire

Richard Jefferies: 

26th February 1940 - 19th April 2012
Seen here commentating at the 2009 Cheese Rolling at Cooper's Hill.

Richard's voice was familiar to thousands of fans as the definitive voice of the Cheese Rolling.
An enthusiastic supporter of the Cheese Rolling, his was the voice heard in many radio, television & film interviews over the years, this in addition to being the commentator for the event each year.
Behind the scenes, he was to be seen hard at work for many days before each event, clearing the hill, erecting fences and then, after everyone had gone home, he was still at work late into the evening, clearing up and restoring the hill and its environs for the enjoyment of all.
