NABO loses it oldest member: Philip Ogden passes away

It is with great sadness that we have learnt that NABO’s oldest member died on the 5th of February 2014. Philip celebrated his 100th birthday last June. He had kept remarkably fit and boated into his 90’s, happily stepping over lock gates in his 80’s!

Joining NABO in its early years, he served on our Council, becoming the representative for the disabled, a position he held until his death.

Involved also in many other canal-related activities, his death will be felt by many who admired this wonderful hero of our waterways.
