The co-founder of the Havering Miniature railway Club, David Middleton, died on Monday (6th July 2020). He was surrounded by friends and family
Mr Middleton, along with his son Paul Middleton, were founders of the railway that runs in Lodge Farm Park.
On Facebook Paul commented
I cannot stress how fantastic the work of St Francis Hospice, Marie Curie and the local nurse team has been. The equipment, service and emotional support that we have received has been unbelievable.
These were not faceless people doing their jobs but people full of warmth and positive attitude that carried out their duty while supporting all of us. At times it was like having an additional member of the family but one that knew what to do.
Councillor Damian White, Leader of Havering Council, said:
“Lodge Farm Park’s Miniature Railway is a real asset to our borough and the volunteers at Havering’s Miniature Railway Club have done incredible work
This Sunday the club will be running one of the locomotives at Lodge Farm Park for St Francis Hospice. It is ticket only and tickets are being auctioned off online now.
