In Memory of Alastair McNeill

Solway Firth Partnership staff, Board of Trustees and partners are very sad to report the passing of Alastair McNeill on 7 July 2021 after a long illness.

Alastair was one of the founding members of SFP and helped shape the organisation during its early days. He joined the Board of Trustees in 2011 and became Chair in 2014. He was directly involved in many of SFP’s affairs and contributed great professional support to the organisation. Whilst leading SFP he provided a steady influence and was a source of advice and support to all the staff.

He will be greatly missed by many people for his wise counsel and leadership.
