Professor Emeritus John Alliston.

Tragic death of John Alliston, the first Chairman of HPF

12th June, 2017

John had been inaugural Chairman of The Henry Plumb Foundation and had only demitted office in January 2017 in order to spend time developing a personal housing project.

He was an exceptionally gifted individual, highly respected with friends in all sectors of the agricultural community. Lord Plumb and all his fellow trustees had been looking forward to his continued involvement as a Trustee of the Foundation and paid tribute to his legacy of laying the groundwork for the highly successful organisation of The Henry Plumb Foundation.
