Denis Tomlin and Phil Holt

Dear Old Silhillians

Following the tragic news of Martyn Garner’s death, I’m afraid I have further sad news to share.

Please excuse the lack of additional information at this stage, but two very long serving members of staff and two dedicated, kind and gentle former colleagues died this morning: Denis Tomlin and Phil Holt. Many members of the school community will have been tutored, taught or mentored by Denis and/or Phil. Denis later went on to be the school archivist and both contributed to the wider life of the school in many ways. We will miss Martyn, Denis and Phil deeply.

Of course, I will inform of you of any commemoration events at school and I’m sure you will join me in sending our individual and collective thoughts and prayers to all their families.

Best wishes and take care all.

Mr DEJJ Lloyd
