We have recently received this email from Mrs Booth;
I’m sorry to have to let you know that my husband Alan Roy Booth, an ex Altrincham Grammar School boy and Old Alt for many years, recently passed away.
I’m afraid I don’t know the dates of his time at the school, but would guess it would be sometime around 1948 onwards.(Dates 1947-1952 from our database)
Alan’s funeral will be held on Tuesday 28th November at 3.30pm at Altrincham Crematorium.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me for any further details you may need. COLIN BAMFORD
This year’s AGM was held in the Library at School on Wednesday 8th November.
As has become a tradition, wine and nibbles were kindly provided by the Headmaster.
The evening marked the end of Colin Bamford’s five years as Chairman of the Association. He was pleased to hand over to Christian James who had stepped up earlier than expected because of Colin’s recent illness. The signs are that Christian will be a very capable replacement, not the least because he has already shown that he has a fund of new ideas!
We were sad to note that the meeting also marked the end of Kenneth Lea’s long and noteworthy membership of the Committee. Colin explained that Ken had been an enormous help to him from the very beginning of his twenty years. Ken must have served for at least twice as long, holding many of the Association’s offices in that time.
The 2018 meeting will be held on Wednesday 7th November.
