Sad news with the announcement of the death of retired colleague Alex Merry.
 
Alex retired from the service as a Fire Prevention officer based in the Borders. He was a highly respected FBU official and held positions at both local and national level throughout his Fire Service career.
 
Funeral arrangements are as follows: 11:00hrs, 8th October at Borders Crematorium, Melrose, TD6 9HA. This will be a Humanist ceremony celebrating Alex's life followed by an opportunity to share stories at the Kingsknowes hotel, Galashiels TD1 3HY, to which all friends and former work colleagues are welcome.
 
The family have asked for no black ties (FBU ones preferred). Family flowers only, however there will be a collection on behalf of Clydeside Action on Asbestos and the Margaret Kerr Unit following the service.
