Dick Taplin

I have to announce that Dick Taplin of the Broceliande affix died on Sunday 29th March after fighting cancer for five and a half years. Many of you who attended Crufts will have seen Dick in his wheelchair surrounded by many friends laughing and chatting with him. It was made easier for him as he was without pain, writes Liz Ede

Although Dick has not been to many shows recently because of his illness, he used to be seen at many open and championship shows with Angela and the family and always ready to give a helping hand.

Dicks funeral is on Tuesday 7th April. A requiem mass will be held at St. Augustine’s Church High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. Only family at the crematorium. There will be refreshments in the church hall. If you think you will be able to attend could you let Sue Mitchell ( 01525 221128) know, so they will have an idea of the numbers. Only family flowers please, Donations are either to MacMillan Nurses or Ian Rennie at home hospice.

Our sympathy and thoughts go to Angela and family at this sad time.
