Paul David Hockaday 18.11.53 - 22.07.17

Dear Colleagues,

On Saturday 22nd July my closest friend Paul Hockaday passed away.

The nature of his death, and sudden departure is a devastating blow to me, my family and Paul's wide circle of friends and associates.

I just wanted to get a quick post into my blog, just to record Paul's passing, and will return soon to record his life more properly.

In the meantime to get a sense of Paul's life, but in particular how, as a community development and youth worker, he enriched the lives of those he worked with directly and indirectly across North Wales, please click on these links:
