In Memoriam

Sadly, yesterday (24th September 2020), we learned of the passing of one of our founder members, the inimitable George Evans. A prolific writer, author of How To Be A Happy Old Man, along with many books about his beloved Wellington, he helped make Wrekin Writers what it is today. The Shropshire Star paid tribute to him here.

He was definitely one of the happiest people we’ve ever encountered.

He will always be remembered for his regular walks to the summit of his favourite hill, The Wrekin, his advocacy of the Wellington Peace Garden, and for promoting the white poppy of peace. Next time any of us are up The Wrekin, George, we’ll raise a glass to you.

Cheers, George.
