A lovely man in every way very sad news. Our first meeting to set up MASA, was all down to him. This was the forerunner of EMACHS.

This is indeed sad news and such a pity that we did not learn of it earlier. Graham was a steadfast supporter of power in the regions. Well into his 80’s he would suddenly turn up at EMASA meetings in Holbeach or Louth having driven from Bromsgrove.
He was an enthusiastic supporter of Leicester’s Awards Scheme, being guest of honour at our very first ceremony in 2006. In fact I remember he arrived in Leicester nice and early so that he could personally visit all the nominations – not just the winners.
He was an astute campaigner for our heritage throughout the region and a great gentleman of the old school. He will be sorely missed.
