Loss of Festival Friends Chairman

  • 12 July 2016

The Swaledale Festival reports with sadness that John Borland, one of our longest serving Board members, who developed the Festival Friends scheme, passed away early on Sunday morning, 10 July, in hospital in Bolton.

John was a stalwart of the Festival and we will miss him hugely. Under his leadership the Festival Friends grew into an important practical and financial support for the Festival with several hundred members. 

Cards or messages of condolence, can be sent to the Festival office and we will pass them on to his family.
