Keith Victor Newton, a former OBA Committee Member and Trustee, sadly passed away on 2nd October 2018, aged 82 years.  Keith was an Old Blackburnian, along with his two brothers and two daughters, one of whom, Julia, was Head Girl from 1984 to 1985.  A real QEGS family in the true sense and great supporters of school.  Keith and his family regularly attended school events, with the annual dinner being a particular favourite of his, although he’d not been able to attend for a number years due to leaving the area and moving to Newcastle some 20 years ago.

Keith leaves his wife Heather, daughters Julia and Sharon and Grandchildren Emily, Mark and Anna.  His funeral took place on 17th October at West Road Crematorium, Newcastle however donations in his memory, if desired, may be made to Northern Centre for Cancer Care, Ward 36, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle.

Our thoughts and prayers  are with his family and friends.
