Lindsey Trimnell “Gone Home”

To All Members, Lonsdale District Scouts

It is with tremendous sadness that I write to inform you that Lindsey Trimnell, Assistant Scout Leader at Forton Scout Group has this morning passed away after a sudden short illness.

Words cannot begin to describe the loss that will be felt by her family, friends, Forton Scouts and Lonsdale District. Lindsey was a true Scout, hard-working, friendly and kind and someone who always did her best.

Lindsey gave 12 years fantastic service to Scouting starting as a Cub Leader and then moving on to the Scout section. The Scout section was very successful, and Lindsey would make sure they always did lots of nights away. They would regularly wake up to snow covered tents at Winter Camp at Hawkhurst and the Troop never missed County Rally.

Our thoughts are with all of her friends at Forton Scout Group, but we are especially thinking about Geoff, Sam and Hannah, may they all find peace in their happy memories of the loving person that Lindsey was.
I know many of you will want to pay your respects, but it is difficult at this present time. I will contact you when we know what arrangements the family would like to make.

  • Lindsey’s funeral will be on Saturday 12th June at St Thomas’ Lancaster at 9.30am
    The family have requested that we line the route leading to the church. We will be mustering at 9:00am near the church. Please join us, if you can, to pay respects to one of our scouting family.
