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 with his traditional firm hand shake 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.
