John David Green - Founder of Border Oak

8.2.1949 – 2.6.2023

A celebration of John’s life will be held at

Burton Court, Eardisland, on

22nd June 2023 at 12 noon.

You are very welcome to attend, and to stay for light refreshments afterwards.

Please don’t feel obligated to wear black and no flowers thank you.

We will be establishing The John Greene Foundation to enable us to continue John’s long legacy of giving to those in need.

All donations in John’s memory will go to the foundation. Border Oak will add to the foundation each year and distribute the funds to groups and charities that support children and young people in rural Herefordshire – something John felt passionately about.

Please find the link to donate here.

If you cannot join us at the celebration service, but would like to share any memories of John, please do email or write to us; it has been a huge comfort to hear your thoughts.

Our heartfelt thanks for all of the wonderful messages we have already received.


Best wishes

The Border Oak team
