Friends and colleagues of the late Adam Ellis-Jones are being invited to take the short ferry crossing from Rhubodach to Colintraive on Sunday, January 8, to join them at an informal gathering at Colintraive Hotel.

An informal gathering is being planned for friends and colleagues of the former operations director of Mount Stuart, Adam Ellis-Jones, who died suddenly just before Christmas.

Adam was well known on Bute, not only through his work at Mount Stuart, but as a champion and advocate for a range of projects and initiatives to the benefit of the whole community.

He was passionate, articulate, astute, occasionally irreverent but unfailingly witty, and his energy and enthusiasm is a great loss to all but particularly to his loving family.

His funeral takes place at 2.45pm on January 4 at Colwyn Bay Crematorium with a gathering after at Rhos-an- Sea Cricket Club.

Rather than flowers, donations are welcomed towards the charity MIND via the funeral directors, A C Lambert & Son, 69 Conwy Road, Llandudno Junction LL31 9LT.

A small group of Adam’s friends and colleagues are planning an informal gathering on Sunday, January 8, from 4pm to 6pm at Colintraive Hotel. This was one of Adam’s favourite places and he liked nothing better than to take the north ferry as a foot passenger from Rhubodach and treat himself to a fish supper and a pint.

Whether you knew Adam well, whether you worked with him, or were simply acquainted with him, please feel free to come and raise a glass to his memory – everyone is welcome.

While it isn’t essential, the organisers would like to give the hotel a rough idea of numbers, so if you plan to attend please email either julia@rothesaypavilion.co.uk or alice@mountstuart.com.
