I am sad on behalf of Colchester CBS and East of England Border & Fife to report the passing of Ken Warne one the stalwarts' of the Border Fancy in our area over many decades.
Ken and his wife Margret who passed away a few years back, were the very backbone of the hobby locally. His drive and determination helped both clubs over the years and make their shows and meetings a success. His and Margret's support could always be relied on. In recent years Kens health had suffered, but his positive outlook and gritted determination saw him make to it meetings in a taxi with a smile on his face and enjoying the company of his many bird friends.
In his heyday Ken could bench a good show team, gracing the front of Cage & Aviary with one of his many winning birds.
The likes of Ken a birdman through and through, are sorely missed in the hobby - as sadly we lose them to the great show hall in the sky.
Our thoughts and Best Wishes go to Kens family.

Mrs Ray Williams
It is with sadness that I have to share with you the sad loss of Mrs Ray Williams, wife of the late J.S. Williams (John Canaries), Garnant, Ammanford.

She will be greatly missed by all at West Wales B.F.C.C. , friends and family.
Our condolences go to her two sons (Clive and Keith) and families.
