    hello there
    My father was the man who called the ambulance and who was fishing with Andy at the time he collapsed
    My father would like to say thank you for all your help that you did that day and what a great job every single 1 of your team do.
    Sadly in this case, that evening Andrew passed away with a stroke
    Keep up the amazing work you do
