LETTER: Vale Alan Finch

SIR, – Through your Wimmera-wide newspaper I acknowledge the passing of Alan Finch, author and historian.

It was back in 1982 that Alan and Brian Brooke, dec, published their wonderful book ‘A Story of Horsham… a municipal century’. During my time as a councillor I found the book an invaluable resource with many great stories, amazing photographs and interesting facts about a growing municipality. 

A visit to various clubs and community groups would usually include a quote or two from the ‘Horsham history book’ to grab people’s attention.

For newer residents of Horsham and our young people, this book is worth checking out at the local library.

Alan, who with his wife Valrie wrote a variety of books, were our neighbours in Quantong and were always an interesting couple to chat with. 

Vale Alan Finch.

Mark Radford, Quantong
