  1. An absolute pillar of the Community, recently Noel through his companies help rebirth the Chasetown Christmas Event along with other Chasetown Businesses. His work with Chasetown Football Club and St Joseph and St Teresa Catholic Primary is amazing.
    Added to this Business achievements on this which is exceptional, Chasetown Civil Engineering especially which he made into a massive National Company followed by Cameron Homes, another amazing business whose head office is in Burntwood.
    Out of all this I know what meant most to him in the world was his Wife and Family.
    Rest in Peace Noel. Thank you for All you have done.

  2. Sorry for the sad news on the passing of my good friend Noel. We have been mates from the early 70s. He certainly put Chasetown on the map.

    RIP Noel with your son Oisin
    Carmel and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time.
