Dave Black – very sad news


Dave passed away yesterday morning (24 May), after several months of declining health. Dave has been a long standing member, on the committee for at least a couple of decades, membership secretary, and a very progressive Club Chairman (2009 to 2014). The Club boat, beginner equipment, and team of RYA instructors are all down to the grants Dave secured for the Club.
Our thoughts go out to Judith and family at this difficult time. We will be thinking of Dave when we are next out on the water.
