Harry - founder member, mover and shaker of the Friends of Epping Forest - has sadly died. Harry was, for me, a man of boundless energy, intelligence, great humour and kindness. Apart from being one of those with the foresight to see and then counter many threats to our beloved Forest, Harry led Friends' walks - not least many of his favourite Centenary Walks, as on this 17th Centenary Walk in 2001... He helped organise and host many Friends' functions such as the Forest Supper with his inimitable wit and charm; he wrote articles in the Newsletter; and introduced many people to the delights of this Forest he has helped to preserve... ...all, of course, with the constant support of Peggy and his family, to whom we offer our inadequate condolences. He'll be sorely missed. Details of funeral arrangements are on the right. Roddy MacLennan Website worker
