We are very sad to report that our former Branch Secretary and current Retired Members’ Officer Carl Millin passed away suddenly yesterday (7 Dec 2017).

Carl led the branch for many decades until his retirement, and stayed very active within the branch and wider Unison movement right to the end.

When we hear anything about funeral arrangements we will share this information with members, as we know many of you will have known Carl from all his work over the decades.

In the meantime, we will be raising a glass in Carl’s memory at the Black Prince (Holiday Inn) adjacent to the A2 (DA5 1ND) from 5.30pm on Tuesday 12 December, in lieu of the branch committee’s Christmas drinks which Carl had arranged there. Anyone wishing to share memories of Carl with others is welcome to join us.
