It is with great sadness that we reported last week that Derek Barnett, our Deputy Chair of Trustees, passed away. Many of you will know Derek not only as a colleague but also a friend, who prior to his retirement was the Charity’s General Manager. His contribution to the establishment of CTLA and its development into the Charity it is today cannot be overstated. CTLA is a tremendous legacy to Derek’s memory and one that his family can be extremely proud of. It has been heart-warming to receive so many kind comments and fond memories shared from everyone and details of Derek’s funeral which will take place on Friday 29th May are detailed below. Sadly there is a limit on the number of people able to be present at the service and this will be restricted to family only but there are lots of ways you can pay your respects to Derek.
