Dr Wynne Davies, MBE, FRAgS



At the request of the family, the Society sadly announces the passing of Dr Wynne Davies MBE FRAgS.
After a very short recurring illness Wynne passed away on Tuesday 7th December 2021.
Further information will be shared in due course.
‘Dr Wynne’ as he was affectionately known, has become a legend within the breed’s history and his contribution to the Society and its membership through the canon of his writing has been remarkable.
The Society extends its deepest sympathy to David, Jane, their families, and friends.

 

Joyce Johns

 

It it with sadness that we have to report the death of long standing member Joyce Johns from Cornwall. Joyce was a very supportive member of the Association and will be greatly missed. A fitting tribute has been made by Rob and Karen Curtis in the next Association newsletter.
