Another sad loss: Ian Scott – RIP

We had been saddened to hear of the passing of another of our good friends, Ian Scott. Ian had been a member and hands on volunteer for many years, he passed away on the 17th December 2016 though we didn’t find out till much later. Several FoWT Trustees and volunteers attended his funeral on Wednesday 4th January 2017.

Ian enjoyed nothing more than getting stuck in and getting his hands dirty to help, especially during the early years after finding Paddington. We can all walk into the Mile Tunnel now quite easily, thanks the work and expertise of Both Ian Scott and Steve Moran who repaired the Brick arch that had been collapsed by the Electricity board in the 1950’s.

Ian always has a smile on his face and was quick with a joke or a funny story, he will be missed by all his friends and colleagues. We send our deepest sympathy to his Family and friends.

RIP Ian…
