I had the fortune to know Gareth during my time as a student activist while at King Alfred’s College Winchester. It was by complete happenstance that we both ended up with NASUWT. Gareth was always an encouraging and clear voice, very supportive for those active with the union. Gareth was always welcoming, patient and friendly. We shared an affinity for Hamilton. For me, Gareth will be remembered for his big brain and even bigger heart. Although he is a loss to the movement, his influence will continue to be felt with all of those who came into his orbit.
I want to express my thank you to his friends and family for sharing Gareth with us in so many ways, and my thoughts and deepest condolences to you all.
