    With great sadness we learned of the death of Simon Dove, a long time member and supporter of the Institute, on Wednesday, 27th December 2017. Simon was sadly taken away after a long and courageous battle against illness. Everyone who had the privilege of knowing him will remember his infectious smile, his positive outlook on life, and his absolute professionalism. Above all, Simon was a true gentleman but nonetheless we have lost a dear friend and valued colleague. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jan, Andrew and the extended family at this time. The funeral will be held at 12.30pm, on Monday 22nd January at Colchester Crematorium.
