For all those Bashers who knew Allen well, his funeral will be on Thursday (tomorrow) – a very sad day. His local friends plan to raise a glass or three at 6 pm along with many of the friends he has elsewhere so please join in if you can. We know Allen does not want us to be sad but rather to reflect on so many happy memories and bring a tearful smile to our faces.
Due to the limiting COVID restrictions and taking into account his own wishes for a very simple affair, there will be no service. His ashes will be interned with his wife, Teresa, at their family grave in Shaldon some time in the future. There will also be a celebration party (which he was very explicit about) when the time is right.

It is with great sadness that I have to announce that a Basher, Allen “Isaac” Newton passed away 17.04.20 following underlying health problems. He was aged 80.
Those of us who knew Allen will particularly remember him as a WW2 flight pilot at the Christmas party. He was the life and soul of the party that day and enjoyed himself very much.
Allen was a sociable man, enjoyed the bash which he found stimulating and a great comfort. He accepted it for what it is. He attended most of the FARTS when his health allowed and rode his electric bike very keenly.
Those who knew him well will miss him.
