It is with deep regret that I have to inform you that Ted Olpin of Allestree, Derby died on 27th December 2019.
One of our oldest OD’s having been at St. Helen’s House, Overton Hall and also Amber Valley Camp.
Ted started at St. Helen’s House way back in 1936 having started in the Preparatory School in 1936.
He was in the first group of pupils to be evacuated to Overton Hall on Saturday 2nd September 1939 and consequently arrived at  the newly built Amber Valley Camp in June 1940, returning to St. Helen’s House in September 1945.
Funeral arrangements are at St. Nicholas Church, Allestree Lane in Allestree on Monday 20th January 2020 commencing at 12 noon.
His wife is Beryl Olpin.
Arrangements are in hand to receive a detailed obituary which will eventually be placed into the OD Website.
It is my intention to attend the funeral on behalf of the Society, perhaps other members will take the opportunity to attend.
