Alan Burgess

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the death of our great friend and colleague Alan Burgess.

Alan was one of the Trust's first volunteers to come down to the Heritage Centre and stay.

He found secondhand furniture to fit out the rooms and put on displays around the walls. He often volunteered to sit in the stocks and have wet sponges thrown at him, and would dress in costume and walk around the market are handing out fliers.

Alan was a big asset to the Trust and will be missed.
