One of Fifield’s favourite sons

In the October/November 2021 issue of The Wychwood we looked back at the life of Les Wilcox, one of Fifield’s favourite sons.  Sadly, not long after this article appeared, Les died at the ripe old age of 94.  From his schooldays at Idbury school to work at Rissington aerodrome and on to many years of painting and decorating, Les was an affable and much-loved member of the community.  He absolutely loved life and village life.  He was the man to go to if you ever wanted to know any information as he had an amazing memory right to the end. He is sadly missed by all.  Please use our website at to read the full extent of Les’s life in the earlier issue mentioned above.
