A GARDEN seat has been dedicated to the memory of Fraser Morgan, former adult education manager, at Camberley Adult Education Centre.

Fraser's widow, Clarrie, cut a tartan ribbon to unveil the new seat, which bears an inscribed brass plate. His son, Neil, paid tribute to his father's commitment to his work and read a poem by Robert Burns.

Also present were colleagues from Surrey County Council's Adult Learning (formerly Adult Education) Service and representatives of the Student/Staff Association at Camberley.

Scotsman Fraser, who died last August, joined the county council in 1990 after spending almost 30 years with the Army Education Corps, during which he travelled the world.

He began his adult education career based at Woking and then moved to Camberley as Principal. He was later appointed Adult Education Manager for North-West Surrey and most recently was based in Addlestone. He lived in Guildford.

Linda Piercy, North-West Area Manager for Community Services, said: "Fraser was deeply committed to basic skills education and enabling everyone to have a second chance and opportunities to learn new skills.

"He was also keen on history and music, and on many occasions he entertained the staff at Christmas lunches at Camberley with his accordion playing."
