Sad news

March 26, 2018

Many members will remember Jon Wimhurst who joined the Society in 1993. Jon has been suffering from heart problems over the last year, and sadly passed away this morning at the Lister Hospital.

Jon was for many years one of our active diggers, joining Tony on many excavations.  More recently, he was one of the Society’s members who helped with the geophysical surveys at Verulamium, Ashwell End and other sites.

Jon studied at Imperial, and then worked for British Aerospace.  He moved into his cottage in Bassus Green, near Walkern, in the 1960s.  Since he retired, he was active in the Workers Educational Association, organising many of their courses, as well as his work with WAS and CAGG.  He will be much missed.

Jon had no immediate family, and we are unsure what arrangements had been made.  We will let members know when we have any further information.
