So sad to hear of Dennis Parkinsons passing. Dennis had organised the Farnworth Film Fun Day since 1988 with Fairs taking place in February & October of each year. The twice yearly Film Fairs continued until 2009 by which time attendance had fallen for the Autumn event so Dennis changed to one Fair a year in February. This years Film Fun Day on February 7th will go ahead as planned and will be overseen by Dennis's son Nigel. Condolences go to Dennis's wife & family. Details of the Funeral arrangements will be placed here when known.

So very sad to hear this news; I only ever met Dennis briefly at his table at the Blackpool Conventions, back when Derann used to run them, but he always stayed in my memory, being such a jolly and enthusiastic guy, both to myself and my better half, Sarah.
Isn't it funny how someone can make such a lasting and meaningful impression during just a few minutes?
My condolences to his son, whom I believe was there at Blackpool.
My sincerest sympathies to Dennis's family.
How lovely that a man can make such an memorable impression within only a few moments of knowing him.
