We are saddened to learn of the death of Peter Davey, a long serving member of the Suffolk Poetry Society, who was, for several years, a highly successful Secretary of and contributor to The Portfolio Group.
Peter was a friend and staunch supporter of the Woodbridge Group until the very end of his active and varied life. He had travelled widely in a professional capacity, his knowledge of Japan was prodigious. He was happily married to Mari, an artist in her own right, some of whose striking water-colours graced the pages of Peter’s publications.
