It is with great sadness that I report the passing of John Wilson Smith MBE.
A founder member and tireless worker for VAS, John died on Sunday 30th December 2012
John was instrumental in the establishment of the Isle of Wight Observatory in Watery Lane Newchurch and will be remembered fondly by all members of the Society as well as the wider community of Newchurch
A celebration of John’s life will be held at the Pavilion (next to the observatory), on January 24th at 11am, followed by a family only interment at Springwood Cemetery
