In Memoriam - Jack Ogden

This article is from Signpost 48, February 2015

We record with sadness the passing, at the age of 89, of Jack Ogden (1925-2014), an honorary member and for many years a most enthusiastic renovator of our signs.

David Bratt, President, represented the Society at his funeral on November 21st. David Morton, Signpost Officer, went to see Jack at his home in Gorton in February 2013. Jack told him about his work with the now defunct Manchester and District Rambling Club for the Blind, who donated our signposts 120 and 239 in 1956. He also described his annual trip by bus to Little Hayfield to repaint Fingerpost 8, calling at Bullshaw Farm to borrow a ladder.

Jack’s sister Sylvia will in due course be presenting the Society with various archive documents illustrating his work on F008 and his deep love of the great outdoors. We intend to attach a memorial plaque to one of our signposts in his honour.
