Picnic in the Park to Remember Alan 

We are having a picnic in the Mapleton Lilyponds park off Delicia Rd at 10am on 13th April 2019, for those who would like to gather together to celebrate Alan's life. Please bring a plate to share, and something to sit on (we will also have some chairs available for those who need them).

UPDATE - Although the weather is overcast we don't anticipate a downpour. There will be marquees for cover. Please bring umbrellas as well. And in the event that the heavens decide to open upon us we will adjourn to the Mapleton Men's Shed at 52 Delicia Rd.

"It was with much sadness and a sense of loss that the ninety members of the Mapleton Men's Shed learnt of Alan's passing away. Al was a most popular member who other than being a skilled tradesman and mentor also had wonderful personal attributes of kindness, welcoming to one and all, always ready to hear someone's story and a wicked sense of humour. Although not much older than me, I always thought of Al as cutting a father like figure at the Shed and is someone whose wisdom that I have personally sought on a few occasions. The members of the Shed extend their deepest sympathy to Margaret and all the other members of the family. Sincerely John Brady President"

Alan was a very dear friend from the time I was 15 and he was 16. A lot of things have happened since that time but time and distance never affected our friendship and I always knew that if ever I needed a friend ( and there were many times over the years ) he would always be there if I called. We went through many good and bad times together and I am heartbroken to think that he is no longer with us. Goodbye dear friend.
