Albert joined us for our Prep 50th Anniversary Dinner back in October, when he was on top form.  

As you may know, Albert was a former Governor of WBS and he helped keep the School open when the Bank tried to close it during difficult financial times.
The funeral will take place at 12pm in Fillegh Church on Friday 24th January

Our thoughts are with Albert's family at this time.
