News: Graham Rimmington 1944 ~ 2010

It is with immense sadness that we have to report that Graham passed away this morning.

A staunch supporter of the Society, a superb Lighting Director who always made it look so easy - even when it wasn't - and an entertaining and fun person to be with both in and out of the studio.  In 2008 he was made an Honorary Member of the STLD in recognition of all his hard work in the day-to-day running of the Society and the publication of its magazine.

His many and varied credits include:  As Time Goes By, Absolutely Fabulous, Victoria Wood, French and Saunders, The Fast Show, Brush Strokes, the list goes on and on..... 

A full obituary appears in issue 103 of Television Lighting and Design magazine.

Our sympathies go to Graham's family.

His funeral took place on Friday 26th November. 

Please consider making a donation to Graham's fund for the Ian Rennie nurses as his wife Anne would prefer people to send donations rather than flowers.

More about the Iain Rennie nurses - the charity which provided help and support to the Rimmington family during some very difficult times.
