Tuesday 18th July 2023

It is with profound sadness that we share the news of the passing of our friend and colleague, Greg Forrest. Greg had a heart attack in early May and was admitted to hospital. He had been making steady progress but sadly suffered a second heart attack approximately one week ago.

He made a huge impact on our business and was loyal, hardworking and astute with a kind and understanding nature. His journey with our company spanned an impressive 10 years, culminating in his well deserved promotion to the role of Finance Director in February of this year.

Greg passed away peacefully at the weekend, surrounded by his wife Tracey and close family. His absence leaves a void that will be deeply felt by us all. We extend our heartfelt condolences to Greg’s family during this sad and challenging time. As we mourn the loss of our colleague and friend, we also celebrate the positive impact he had on our team and the huge contribution he made to our company.

Greg will be sadly missed but very fondly remembered.
