In Memory of
Having help set up the Yorkshire Outdoors business, Richard had the privilege of knowing Geoff for 30 years. Geoff had a wealth of Land Rover knowledge. He originally worked there on the factory floor and progressed to training off road driving techniques at their Solihull, Eastnor Castle and the experience centres.
Geoff was loved by all of our customers and colleagues over the years, and he actively demonstrated advanced off road driving skills with us right up until he was in his eighties.
“Geoff Watkin was such a nice man, temperate in mood, full of fun and adventure. He was always the first in line to put a Land Rover through its extreme paces in some amazing hill climb or jaw dropping descent.
A sad loss, we will never meet another man like him. Deep felt sincere condolences from me personally and all the team at Yorkshire Outdoors to Geoff’s wife Margaret and his family.” – Richard Fawcett, Managing Director
