|Sir William McAlpine|
|We were saddened to hear this morning of the passing of The Hon. Sir William McAlpine Bart., patron of The ‘Clan’ Project. He had taken an active interest in the project since becoming Patron in 2014, and welcomed us to his estate twice when our team visited Fawley Hill to take part in his Steam and Vintage Weekend events. During the first if these visits, a nameplate for Clan McAlpine was presented to Sir William by our Commercial Director, Bob Ife. Sir William was truly thrilled to receive it, and said it would take a treasured spot in his collection of railway memorabilia.
We have, of course passed on our deepest condolences to Lady Judy McAlpine at this very sad time.
It is intended that one or more members of The ‘Clan’ Project team will attend Sir Williams’s funeral once the arrangements are known.
