The Refurbished Greenhill Water Pump

Lesley Fox was born in Greenhill and had a passion for the village, past and present. She established the Greenhill Village History Society in 2015 and served as its first chairperson. Lesley was instrumental in getting the pump renovated recently. When she passed away earlier this year, the cortège stopped at the Greenhill Water Pump for people to pay their respects.
