Farewell to David Towers

Last week we had to say goodbye to one of our long term members, David Towers, who is moving away from the area. David has been a dedicated member of the society for 14 years, and during that time he has barely missed a meeting!

Many of you who were with us when we met at Beckminster will fondly remember David entertaining us on the piano at the start of meetings, as well as his excellent knowledge of amateur radio, and great sense of humour. Behind the scenes, he also gave up his time to help us set up many of the Paul Pope lecture events at St Peter’s, for which we are very grateful.

We are sad to see him go, but we wish David all the best for the future.

Letter from 18th Feb 2018:

We are moving to Colchester on the 20th February to be near our family. I have thoroughly enjoyed my 14 years membership of the Society, learned a lot, enjoyed excellent company and have been completely baffled by just the occasional lecture. Please thank all the Committee and members when you have the opportunity. I would love to continue hearing by E mail all the news of the Society.

Those 14 years have gone so so quickly, time really does fly when you are having fun. All the very best to all Society members, it really has been a privilege to be a member of Wolverhampton Astronomical Society, I shall miss it very much.

All the best,
David Towers
