Gordon Sibbald

Dear Friends and Colleagues,



It is with great sadness that we write to you all today.

Last night, after suffering a heart attack at the weekend, our great friend Gordon Sibbald passed away peacefully at Leeds General Infirmary last night.

Many of you will have known or worked with Gordon in various capacities.

He was instrumental in setting up and building many of the networks to support the aims and objectives which PACE now enjoys as an organisation.

His commitment to promoting and supporting the values of the Hospitality College training sector was widely appreciated and understood by all.

Everyone who new Gordon also appreciated the support he provided for a wide range of initiatives. We were lucky to have had the benefit of his experience patience and calmness in the face of huge change in our sector.

He will be very much missed by us all.

As soon as we have details of his funeral arrangements we will be circulating these to our network.

Our thoughts go out to his wife, Ginny and his family at this time.
