It is with deepest regret that we announce the passing of Jens Peter Fulda. Our heartfelt sympathies go out to his family.

Jens was a self made man who not only developed a great deal of this area but was a man with a great social conscience, funding many projects to help others, not least of which was the schools computer project in conjunction with the local Lions club, (read full story – scroll to bottom of page).

Jens also built and funded a children’s home in South America along with many other projects.

He will be sadly missed by all who had, as I did, the privilege to call him a friend.
