In Loving Alan Dazley: 'Always a keen creative ACE member'.Memory of Alan Dazley

Alan has been a member of ACE for over a decade. He was always the person that greeted you on arrival with hand outstretched; often our visiting speaker took him for the organiser because of his smart appearance and well mannered ways. We noticed that Alan’s priority was his ‘cuppa’; no sooner was he in the door than he was heading for the drinks machine.

He was a quiet member of ACE always sitting with his close friends Paul and Margaret. He was keen to have a go at new crafts such as textiles, painting glass, mosaics and pottery. He helped create last years TRAIL recycled sculpture of a rock pool made from an old billiards table and he made some mosaic fish for the Rising Tides project. These pieces were on show throughout the summer where thousands of people saw them on Teignmouth sea front; something that made him very proud.

Alan tried several classes from gardening to sport mobility which he really enjoyed, especially being on the winning team! He was also a dab hand at volley ball, demonstrating eye and hand co-ordination, which many others find difficult.

Over the years the ACE trustees have arranged many trips and events for members – to Newquay Zoo, BBQ’s in the garden and a visit to Dartington where as usual Alan was the smartest, appropriately dressed like a country gentleman and with ready smile.

We shall remember him as quiet, polite and well mannered, a man who got a lot out of ACE.  The trustees would like to thank his family for supporting ACE today. Alan was a key member and this is a charity that is run by and for people with disabilities enabling them to lead a happy and normal social life as they enjoy learning.
