Paul ‘Biggun’ Aldridge


Sad to say that our old friend and colleague of over thirty years – Paul ‘Biggun’ Aldridge – may have to hang up his earphones and retire after suffering a heart attack a few days ago. Paul is ok and recovering after the fitting of a stent, is being monitored, and hopes to be back home tomorrow. (Monday)

His surgeon has advised him that there can be no more lifting of heavy equipment so with a heavy heart, we have to wish him a healthy and peaceful retirement.
Paul has always been a ‘handful’ a many of you may know, but he is a great friend with a big heart, and will be greatly missed by The Fortunes.
The search now begins for his replacement…………..

  • Harry Whitehouse (H) on

    We will all miss “Mr Grumpy” (Biggun) and your right Mick he was perhaps often a handful but this only went to add to him being the big character he was. Nevertheless it is good he is pulling through, take care matey.

  • It’s early days Harry, but he sounded his old self when I spoke to him yesterday. Modern medicine is amazing and I’ve heard you feel much better after having a stent fitted. Who knows? He might even want to carry on!!
