I am sure most of you will have heard the very sad news that Bill Gent died over the weekend of complications associated with the Covid-19 virus. Bill had been a long-serving, much loved and hugely respected adviser and colleague, working in London and more recently with NATRE as their editor of their RESource (subsequently REflection) magazine. Bill’s wide experience and deep wisdom in things RE won him not just the respect, but also the affection of all with whom he worked. All AREIAC members who knew and worked with Bill, will remember his humour and humanity, as well as his professional excellence and generosity. He will be sorely missed. His family are in our thoughts at this hugely difficult time. We hold them close. Farewell Bill Gent.
There will be a tribute to Bill in the up-coming AREIAC newsletter and if you wish to add your own thoughts and memories of Bill to this, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrive by Friday 15th May
