Liz Spear reminisces on Paddy


Paddy had very close connections with North Devon.  A really great Leader of the new Liberal Democrat Party formed in March 1988.  I was Local Party Secretary then (!) and I believe Mike Knight was Chair.  We had a massive lunch of the new Party at the Barnstaple Hotel which I jointly organised.

This photo was taken in April 2010 when Paddy came to Chivenor to help campaign for Nick in the 2010 General Election.  Joe Tucker and Paddy made a brilliant campaign duo!! – marching around and giving orders!!  A first class military exercise!  (pic courtesy of Derrick).

Paddy will be sorely missed.
