Allan Swan

Issue No. 1767

COMRADES IN Sheffield are mourning the loss of Allan Swan. He was a respected teacher, thinker and fighter for socialist ideas who died aged 53 on 13 September.

He was a pivotal figure in Sheffield and a prominent member of the NUT in North Derbyshire. Allan campaigned against racism and for better conditions at work and in his community of Pitsmoor. He was highly regarded by all who knew him.

Our thoughts are with Annie. Allan's funeral takes place at 2pm on Friday 21 September at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium, Abbey Lane, Sheffield. All are welcome. Please send donations in Allan's memory to St Luke's Hospice in Sheffield, and Bookmarks.
