Richard Jefferies: 

26th February 1940 - 19th April 2012
Seen above 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 at Cooper's Hill.

An enthusiastic and tireless supporter of the Cheese Rolling, his was the voice heard in the many radio, 

television & film interviews over the years, this in addition to being the commentator for the event each year.

Behind the scenes, every year, he was to be seen hard at work for many days before the event, clearing the hill of vegetation, stones and general debris, 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.

 

Richard will be sadly missed by all who had the pleasure and honor to have known him.
