    Very sorry to hear of Alan's passing. Will always remember him single-hand idly, running Houghall and the farm and turning the whole thing around. Although he was a fairly determined sort of character he gave a lot of his younger staff real opportunities to grow, so a lot of us are very thankful to him for that. We also remember the "Alan Hetherington fashion tips", which usually caused a laugh. It really was a life well lived and he touched many peoples lives and was a very positive influence for many. Our thoughts are with Brenda and the family. Ian and Angela Yule, New Zealand.
