With much sadness we record the death of Harvey Bell last week. Harvey was a long time member of the Club and served on the Committee for several years taking over the role of Treasurer following the death of his wife Christine. Harvey had been diagnosed with cancer, and despite a course of chemotherapy he continued to support club shows and was often seen at general championship shows. His positive attitude to his illness was an inspiration, and whenever we saw him at shows he would greet us in his traditional manner of a firm handshake and a cheery word. A CC judge of some years standing he was a familiar figure in the show ring. No technophobe he was always keen to acquire the latest technology which he used to great advantage in taking photos and videos when he was not judging. He would kindly provide the breed judge with a copy of the video he had taken. Not just a pictorial record but an invaluable aid for the novice judge. Rest in peace Harvey you will be missed. Our thoughts are with Vicky and the family at this time.

The Funeral Service was held at Park Wood Crematorium, Elland, at 12.00 p.m. on 30th June 2016. Vicky read a poem and Karen spoke of her memories of her dad. Mourners were invited to join the family for refreshments at Casa Brighouse Elland Road, Brighouse. Not surprisingly given his love of photography there were many photos of Harvey and the family on display to provoke many memories.
The schedule for the open show on 24th September 2016 is now available at www.fossedata.co.uk or from show secretary Dorothy Owen Tel 0115 9816018
