Des Pinnock

A message from Company Secretary Jack Telling

Many of you will have known or will have been aware of our Membership Secretary Des Pinnock.
I am sorry to have to advise you that Des died peacefully in hospital last Wednesday. As yet there is no information regarding his funeral but it is unlikely to be held before February.

Des was a longstanding member of the Trust and joined Trust Council in 1993. He took on the role of Membership Secretary and despite resigning from Trust Council in 2010 he continued in this role until his untimely death.

Des devoted a great deal of his time to the administration of our Membership and his attention to detail was meticulous. During his period of stewardship he saw membership rise from just over 1000 to a figure of 7700 today.

The Trust is indebted to Des for all his voluntary work over so many years.
