At CPT he was responsible for CoachMarque and liaison with the tourism sector. He also helped to develop both the CPT’s Coach Friendly status, and the European Alliance for Coach Tourism.Simon Posner, CPT CEO, says: “Alf was almost literally larger than life. His knowledge and experience of the tourism industry was second to none, which made him an invaluable member of the CPT team.“More importantly however he was just a wonderful person. Very few people can light up a room just by entering it. Alf was one of those people. A kind, gentle man and the best story teller I have ever met.”A celebration of Alf’s life will be held at 1500hrs on Wednesday 18 April at Worthing Crematorium’s Kingswood Chapel, BN14 0RG; and afterwards at Worthing Rugby Club, Roundstone Lane, Angmering BN16 4AX.
