Brian Lomax 1967 - 2014

Friends of Darwen Days

It is with deep regret that I have to inform you of the passing of a Darwen Days stalwart and former vice Chairman Mr Brian Lomax

Brian as well as carrying out his committee duties spent hundreds of hours taking thousands of pictures all around Darwen for your enjoyment. Brian has given Darreners and wider audience hours of enjoyment and untold memories. You would always see Brian with his camera slung around his neck almost hidden by his camouflage jacket, either on the main road, snooping around old buildings or up on the moors. Brian was his own man but his dedication to the early days of Darwen Days was immense.

Brian's legacy will be the photographs he has placed on Darwen Days. Also the memories he leaves us of the time we spent together.
Brian we thank you for your great work and dedication and help in making Darwen Days what it is today.

Absque Labore Nihil - a true Darrener
