Ben Trichler was at Uffington School, the one my son goes to, till the summer, and then moved on to King Alfred’s in Wantage (I think), in the same year as my step-daughter. His mum is also the teaching assistant in Dan’s class. Ben was very bright, clever, very sporty – a striking-looking boy who everyone knew.
This is really sad. I don’t know him or his mum more than being at Dan’s school but feel so upset now. 11 years old … what a bloody waste 🙁
Goodbye Ben – we’ll never forget you.
