It is sad to report the death of another long term residents of Cotton.
Ernie Smith has died aged 95 years, he lived in Cotton with his wife and family for many decades. Ernie had several jobs during his life time but most of his working life was on the railways. However, his early career and lifelong interest was in working horses especially the Suffolk Punch in which he was an expert. If you ever asked him what he did for a living he would say 'horseman'. Ernie was predeceased by his wife and son.
Another good man gone.
