Very Sad News About Lenny Nunn

I am sad to report that Lenny Nunn passed away on 20 January, 2024 and our condolences & deepest sympathy go to his wife, Jean.  Lenny was a well liked member who had been with the club right from the start in 1977, thus being a founding member.  He worked at BIP and then Hydro as did most of the early members of the club, and for many years he never missed a walk.  He made a massive contribution to the club’s operation (especially raising money through the annual Xmas draw), always offering help and advice and will be fondly remembered for his sense of humour, boundless energy and enthusiasm for walking.  He hasn’t been on walks recently, in part because he was helping to care for his mother in-law, who is over 100 years old, but just a few days ago ago he told me he hadn’t had a drink in two years and would soon be returning to walk with the club and he was saving himself to have a drink with us again.  The picture below shows him enjoying a pint in Whitby following an AFWC walk along the Yorkshire Coast in 2004.

  1. More desperately sad news, so soon after the news that Mike Scarre had passed. Lenny was a giant of the club. His infectious laugh could be heard on all walks, and there are too many stories to tell here about him and his capers.

    I raise a glass to him, and i’m sure you’ll all join my toast.

    To Lenny, truly unique.
