It is with sadness that I have to advise you of the passing of Alan Norton a staunch member of the Forum for 20 years despite disabilities he suffered. Alan had not been able to attend Forum for just over a year following a fall prior to our 2013 Christmas lunch which he was due to attend and his latter time has been spent in Belmont Nursing Home.
His memorial service will take place on Monday January 19th venue St. Mark’s Church Leeds Road at 11a.m followed by refreshments and an invitation has been extended by Jane Norton to all members who wish to attend as the Forum was important to Alan in his later years.
John Taylor will speak at tomorrow’s meeting of the Forum about Alan and our sincere condolences are sent to his family.
