Jim Lidstone

Hello all,

I'm sorry to have to bring the following sad news:

Our former Chairman, Jim Lidstone died earlier this year.

Jim took over as Chairman of our association from Clare Gailans in 2000 and held that post until 2005. Prior to taking office in our association Jim had played a very active role in a number of other organisations of blind people, including the various different associations of telephonists and office workers.

Jim was a very quiet, wise man respected by all who were lucky enough to know him.
