Honorary Member Brian Kirkness

Brian has been a dedicated volunteer at the site at Almondell since early 2014. He is respected by all for his willingness to help with, and knowledge about, any problem we encounter, particularly to do with troublesome trees. Sadly, Brian was diagnosed with MND in 2016 .  As a gesture of appreciation and thanks for his contribution as a volunteer, the Society presented Brian with an Honorary Membership.   Sadly Brian and passed away in early 2017.  He will be missed.

We all remember Brian for his ability to drive the various diggers or dumpers we had on site.  Watching him maneuver these with aplomb was a delight.  This piece of kit in the photograph was on site to prepare the top car park and Brian was just itching to have a go!
