We have recently been informed of the sad news that OB Peter Donald Forbes passed away on 9th May 2019, aged 67.  Peter was at QEGS from 1959 to 1969, having started as a young boy in Horncliffe and then moving on to the main school and sixth form.

After QEGS Peter attended Leeds School of Architecture.  Following graduation Peter became a community architect, working for, and with, various charitable and community organisations, subsequently working in a self-employed capacity managing, and providing advice on, community based projects.  Peter lived in Ribchester for many years where one of his projects was to design and help build Ribchester Playground.

Our thoughts and prayers go to Peter’s wife Jackie and three children.
