We were saddened to hear of the death of Mr Roger Turner who passed away in early January.   Roger was a Trustee of Wildlife Trust, West Wales from 2000 and the Wildlife Trust of South and West since its formation in 2002, becoming Chairman in 2004 and after being re-appointed, remained in office until 2009.  Roger was Chairman during the time Skokholm Island was purchased and became a Skokholm Founder assisting in the acquisition of the island and creating the Founders Book - a sturdy, engraved oak book bound with leather, which is kept at Lockley Lodge as a reminder of those who had made a significant financial contribution to the purchase.

Roger lived in Tenby and leaves behind his wife, three children and three grandchildren. Sincere condolences have been sent to his family.
