Passing of a friend

We are sad to report the news of the passing of Terry Allen, following a long illness.

During the time Terry volunteered at the museum he was an active Boat Museum Society Committee member, and had a passion for boats and their engines.

In recent times, Terry was unable to participate actively in museum and BMS activities but he maintained a keen interest in what was going on, and was kept up to date by Bob Dean and Charlie Jones.

Terry’s funeral took place on the 28 July and was attended by several members of staff and volunteers who joined family, friends and former work colleagues, to bid him farewell.

Our condolences go to Terry’s wife, Hilary, his children, and grandchildren.
