Sadly we have to report the death of Tim Holt from Cumbria, aged 81.
Tim was probably best known for running the Cumbria steam gathering. Tim always insisted they “gathered” not rallied. For many years the event was in Kendal town and in 1986 moved to Calk Airfield.
Tim had a distinguished career as a farm safety officer and put his knowledge to good use on behalf of the Trust running annual rally safety officer training days with his friend Mike Garstang. He brought a great deal of professionalism to everything he did was indeed a good servant of the Trust.
He was a very keen vintage car owner having several Lagonda cars which he enjoyed driving with great vigour. We send our condolences to his wife Jenny, who many will know as well from her time as secretary to the Trust.
