Farewell to Michael Provert

Michael Provert was always standing with The Kiln Photo Workshops. His life-long contribution and love to the community of Badshot Lea, Waverley, Surrey will be remembered by many after his sad demise on Saturday 21st January 2017.

Michael was significantly important figure to The Kiln as the longest standing supporter and the Trustee of Badshot Lea Village Hall where The Kiln Photo Workshops opened in 2010.

‘Without Michael, The Kiln Photo Workshops would have never happened. He was always very kind, helpful and backed our difficult transition time from the Badshot Lea Adult Education to the present The Kiln Photo Workshops. To The Kiln, he was a sort of a patron, I can say.’ Abb Abbas-Nazari, the Director of The Kiln Photo Workshops, remembered Michael’s dedication to promote culture and education in the community.

Equally importantly, Michael’s contribution to local history is noteworthy. He had been enthralled by local histories and built extensive collection of old pictures, maps and periodicals for the community of Badshot Lea. Looking at old archives that he had left with us, we affectionally remember him, his passion to the community and that of people. His archives also bring us some amazement by finding how the village of Badshot Lea and those residents’ life had been changed over decades.

It is our pleasure to share some images of his archives here including old images of the Hop Kiln, which originally built in 1886 and converted to the current Badshot Lea Village Hall with much efforts and hard work by Michael and other Trustees. 

We would like to pray for his soul resting in peace and wish to thank him for all our happy memory that we shared with him.
