Nick Green  (Lisvane 1964-69, Hartford 1969-75) died unexpectedly from a heart attack on 12th February, aged 63 years. We thank his brother Joe (Hartford 1973-1978) for providing the following detail.

Nick was head boy at the College (1974 -1975) and after leaving went on to train as an army officer at Sandhurst. His successful army career with the Green Howards, which lasted for 25 years, took him on tours of Northern Ireland, Germany and the Oman.

Having taken early retirement from the army, he moved to South Africa, a country he loved and had been introduced to during his army years.

For the last 20 years Nick had been CEO of Gongolo Wildlife Reserve and was instrumental in its development.  Unfortunately, the reserve has not yet been completed but it is a wonderful project to have been associated with. A 40,000 hectare game park that will house all of the celebrated big five – lion, leopard, rhino, buffalo and elephant, in the western region of Kwazulu- Natal province between the coast and the Drakensberg Mountains.   

Nick never married, but remained close to his family in England and will be sadly missed.

A service of thanksgiving will be held at St Mary’s Church, Cloughton, on 18th March 2019, at 2 pm.  Everyone welcome.
