10 Tributes to ‘inspirational’ Alan Warm tributes have been paid to a Billinge man. Alan Swift, who grew up on Claremont Road, died last month, and was known to many for his active involvement in community life. Born and raised in Billinge, he lived on Crank Road and enjoyed sport, was involved in his local church and also in the University of the Third Age. An ex-Up Holland Grammar School pupil, he helped organise reunions. Alan (left) promoting the 2014 grammar school reunion with David Earn extra cash!

Through this we raised over £1300 for the cancer charity at Clatterbridge Hospital, where Alan was receiving treatment. After that we organised several afternoon reunions at Gathurst Golf Club, helped Winstanley College with their Jubilee celebrations, and both of us became trustees on the UpHolland Grammar School Education Foundation at Winstanley College, with Alan taking on the job of treasurer. “Alan was an inspiration; always wanting to help, always jovial, and had a really positive attitude to life. He loved all sports, supported Everton Football Club and loved watching horse racing. He enjoyed travelling and spent many breaks visiting different places in Europe and the UK. It was a mark of the esteem in which Alan was held locally in that at his funeral on January 25, at St Aidan’s Billinge the church was full to overflowing with people standing in the aisles and rear of the church. Alan’s jovial nature, helpfullness, and love of life will always be an inspiration to me. “I will greatly miss his help and friendship.”
