I regret I have to convey the sad news of the death of Allen Collins on 20th October. Allen was a member of East Sutton tower and some of us will have known him for many years through COOTS as the popular and friendly ‘Chief Coot’.

Allen died peacefully at home with his family around him. ‘Rest in peace Allen’.

The funeral will be held on Wednesday 6 November at 12.30 pm at Vinters Park Crematorium, Bearsted Road, Maidstone, ME14 5LG, followed by a reception at Sutton Vallence Village Hall, ME17 3HS. You may like to know that Allen was responsible for raising the money to build the Hall.

If you wish to attend the reception at Sutton Vallence Village Hall, please could you let Betsy know via email to (unless you are a Member of COOTS and have already notified Albert Gordon) so she can let Sandra, Allen’s daughter, know numbers for catering purposes.
