Tuesday 17th January 2023


It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of our President David Brierley on Thursday 12th January 2023.

David has been connected to LADOS for over 50 years. Along with being President and a trustee he has also been front of house manager. David was always there for LADOS, supporting and guiding the committee. He was a great front man meeting and greeting the theatregoers front of house; making them feel welcome and promoting the show. He was a very good advocate for LADOS giving out leaflets and promotional cards, where possible. He always used to say that as he went to a lot of funerals, it was an ideal opportunity to discreetly give out the cards. It seemed to work!

David will be greatly missed, being around for over 50 years he was part of the fabric of LADOS; someone who was always there wherever he was needed, someone who you could rely on. They don't make them like that any more, LADOS were lucky to have him on the team.

His funeral will be held on:

Thursday 26th January, 11.30am at Wesley Methodist Church, Middleton Road, Heysham, followed by committal at Lancaster & Morecambe Crematorium and onward to Heysham Golf Club. For further information contact: Alex Willis Funeral Home, 2 Middleton Road, Heysham, LA3 2QD.
