Specially arranged and rung prior to the funeral of Alistair James Binks, friend of the treble ringer.
Alistair passed away peacefully at his home on 4th April 2017 aged 50, and is the eldest son of Stuart & Jennifer Binks. Stuart was Consultant Gyneacologist at Pilgrim Hospital Boston.
Alistair loved sport - besides playing football Alistair was a Grimsby Town football supporter, attending as many matches as possible and for his 50th birthday he received a football shirt sent by the players from Grimsby Town.
Be sides football snooker was another of Alistair's passions, watching snooker on Television as well as attending the snooker finals in London on three occasions.
Alistair was employed at Pilgrim Hospital from the early 1980's initially in horticulture and later ground maintenance but he loved nothing better then going home and helping to manage the 8 acres of ground owned by his parents.
Alistair always had time and a friendly welcome for staff and visitors - he will be sorely missed.
