notice.jpg Arthur Cottam
 Hi, seen in the MEN from the 30th March 2015

Police appeal

Can you help police trace the relatives of a man from Eccles?

They are trying to trace the family of 77-year-old Arthur Cottam who was sadly found dead at his Peel Green Road home on Saturday.

There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding his death.

Call the police coroners officer on 0161 856 4687 with any information.

Arthur worked at Pendleton Telephone Exchange for some 30 years as TO on exchange maintenance with my Dad, John Faulkner. Despite that we know relatively little about Arthur, just remembering him as a very polite and always helpful chap, sad to see such a request though.

 Geoff Plevin contacted us with this sad news.

I heard this morning from a relative that lived near Bill that Bill had died last week and his funeral took place yesterday (19/3/15).

People may remember Bill from working in RSC's in Bury and I think Cheetham Hill. He later worked as a manager at Altrincham RSC and the at the Customer Contact Centre in Church ST. RIP Bill.

 Gary Jackson asked me the other day if I could put out a request for photos of Peter Cooper either at work or from Xmas Doo's or his leaving bash.

Peter was well known and worked at Turret House.

flowers2.jpg Farewell Alan Gawne
 Received the following information from John Makinson:

Sadly I have to inform you of the passing away of Alan Gawne peacefully on Wednesday last week in Macclesfield Hospital. I am sure that not all of you would have known or remember Alan.

He originally worked around Wilmslow and ended up as the TOA in Congleton exchange around the time of the installation of the then new TXE4A unit. Unfortunately he went on holiday to Greece one year and returned with Hepatitis B and after a brave fight he had to leave BT on ill health grounds in the mid 1990s. Eventually after many years he had a Liver transplant but along the way had many other problems with his hearing, his eyesight etc. but through it all he remains upbeat.
Alan was 66 years old and leaves a wife Carol, two sons and two grandchildren.

Alan's funeral arrangements: 2:00pm on Tuesday 3rd March at Macclesfied Crematorium.
