Stewart Orr: A Friend of Metfield Village Hall

30th June 2019

The death of one-time Metfield resident, Stewart Orr, on Thursday 27th June 2019 is a sad blow to the communities of Withersdale, Metfield, Mendham and the surrounding area. Stewart is remembered with great fondness as a true friend of Metfield Village Hall.  For many years Stewart supported our Village Hall as the voice of Metfield Village Fete donating his time and sound system to perform faultlessly as a genial master of ceremonies.

Stewart for many years hosted a weekly arts programme on Radio Norfolk and his company, Stewart Orr Sound Services, provided a range of mobile presentation and recording services. Stewart was also an expert on, and an avid collector of, early video, TV, sound and camera equipment examples of which which filled much of his converted barn in Withersdale Street.
