Remembering George Yeats

We are very sad to report the recent passing of George Yeats.

An avid Tibet supporter over decades, George started the Bath Tibet Support Group in 2009 and was its driving force, organising many events and protests.

In 2014 , when we found ourselves shorthanded at the last minute for WOMAD, George stepped into the breach, coming to the festival each day to help us man our stand.

It was such a wonderful gesture from a remarkable man.

During his life George worked for various aid organisations, including 12 years in Papua New Guinea and time in Nigeria, Fiji, Sierra Leone, Tasmania and Indonesia, working in the field of tropical agricultural economy.

He will be greatly missed and will remain an inspiration.
