It is with great sadness that we inform you that Colin Melrose, committee member and our Volunteer Coordinator, passed away peacefully on Tuesday 3rd January.
Everyone connected with the Festival, especially the Volunteers, will know that Colin put an incredible amount of time and effort into the Festival over the past few years, despite his declining health. He organised the volunteer teams and attended virtually all of the events to ensure that our audiences had a great experience; and afterwards, he always sent out a “thank you” note to each volunteer team together with some anecdote of the evening!
Colin was a very important part of the Festival team and will be greatly missed by us all. We also know that we will all reminisce about him with great sadness and affection at each and every event. His humour, kindness, generosity and bravery will never be forgotten.
On behalf of the Trustees, the Committee and everyone involved with Lymm Festival, we send our deepest sympathy to his widow, Chris, and to the whole of his family.
