You are invited to celebrate the life of Alf Filer together with friends, family and comrades.
Alf was tragically killed on June 24 - this is an opportunity to remember him and share those memories with others that knew him and miss him.

The evening will commence at 7pm and hot food from the excellent local Indian restaurant Shamrat will be served at 8pm at a cost of £7 per person. There will also be a bar run by the people who run the Tin Tabernacle (which hasn't been a religious building for many years) at below pub prices.

Following the food there will be a series of tributes from people who knew Alf well - and space for those who decide they want to add something on the night.

There will be entertainment from Ian Saville and music to end the evening.

There will also be a memorial book available for people who want to write their tributes (in addition to or as well as speaking them) which will be given to Alf's sons, Lawrence and Leon, afterwards.

We will be decorating the hall with photos of Alf and also appropriate banners. If you have photos you want us to enlarge please email to uk by the end of Wednesday 7th - otherwise bring what you have along with you

There is no admission charge for the event but we are asking those who can to make a donation with the money going to Leon and Lawrence to defray any outstanding funeral costs and to donate to whatever cause(s) they think would be closest to Alf’s heart.

Because we are ordering food, we are asking people to RSVP if they can to by Thursday 8th

If you are not able to join us on the night but would like a tribute to be read out or entered in the memorial book please send it to:

Please circulate this email to anyone who knew Alf
