Anniversary of death marked with celebration of Terry's life
THE tenth anniversary of the death of former Derby journalist Terry Lloyd is being turned into a celebration by his family.
Friends and colleagues of the ITN reporter, who was one of the first victims of the war in Iraq when it started 10 years ago, are being invited to a family event.
Daughter Chelsey is asking them to join her and other members of the family at The Crown pub, in Aylesbury Road, Cuddington, on Saturday, March 23.
The pub is in the same Buckinghamshire village where Terry lived with Chelsey, wife Lynn and son Oliver.

The invitation is lightheartedly headed: This is Terry Lloyd, News At Ten, in the pub.
Chelsey, who is on the production team of ITV's morning show Lorraine said: "I worry that Dad sinks further away from our lives and I want us all to remember and celebrate the life of a much-loved man who left an impression on us all.
"If he was here now, he'd be in his local pub, which is where we'll all be from around 5pm."
Terry was born and grew up in Alvaston, the son of the late police constable Aled Lloyd and wife Agnes.
His brother Kevin played Tosh Lines in ITV police drama The Bill for many years. He died a few years before Terry was killed.
He began his journalistic career in Derby, at Raymonds news agency, before making a name for himself covering major stories, both in the UK and internationally, for ITN, where he became a highly-respected war correspondent.
He had been in the Iraqi city of Basra for only a few weeks before being killed in a so-called friendly fire incident. A freelance photographer also died.
Former Derby Telegraph journalist Lucy Orgill, and husband John, of Littleover, knew Terry from age 16.
John worked with Terry both at Raymonds and at Central News in the early 1980s.
Lucy said: "We had some great times with Terry; hilarious times. We spent some memorable holidays and evenings with him and Lynn.
"We last saw him just before he went to Iraq. We have so many anecdotes about Terry. We have some wonderful memories of him."
