Loss of our Society President, Peter Martin

We were extremely saddened to receive the news that Peter Martin, our President, had passed away at home with his family around him. Peter’s health has been deteriorating over the past few months and he had just returned home with care provided and Phyllis Tuckwell support made available

We will miss Peter very much. He had been a stalwart of FPS from the very beginning of the Society, and the Pond and Reserve wouldn’t be where it is without all his efforts. His wife Barbara and his family are in our thoughts. Peter and his wife Barbara are pictured above.

An article on Peter’s life with FPS will appear at a later date.
