It is with the greatest sadness that we inform you that Allan Pennie passed away on Monday 4th April, aged 87 years. Allan was a co-founder of the Heritage Trust, Chairman for the first 15 years and more recently was appointed as an Honorary Vice-President. He was honoured in 2014 by the installation of a stained glass window in the Heritage Centre which shows many aspects of his long life.
He celebrated his 70th birthday in 1998 with a poem:
April 9th in the year of 1998
To me that was a special date
For what reason, and in what way?
I give great blessings and hear me say.
Happily to you I can relate
Born was I that day in 1928
At birth I came alive
Doc did say he’ll no survive
But Gran was there to disagree
She did wash and clad me
Life’s experiences hath served me well
To all who ask I rightly tell
So Dear God with loud Amen
Thank you for three score year and ten.
