Alec Mann (1951-2022)

We are deeply saddened at the recent sad and unexpected death of Alec Mann (1951-2022). Alec was a faithful member of St Peter’s, and amongst a variety of things was a stalwart and very keen member of the St Peter’s Walking and Monday Groups. He had the most amazing historical and factual knowledge of Edinburgh, and kept our church garden grass beautifully mown.

Outwith St Peter’s, Alec was for many years very involved and respected in a number of organisations including SPOKES, and as a Trustee of the Friends of the Meadows and Bruntsfield Links (FoMBL).

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Over the coming weeks we in St Peter’s will be remembering Alec and his family in our prayers.
