It is with sadness that I write this obituary, but also with fond memories of a true gent.
Graham spent many years with the Welsh B.F.C,C, indeed his father was a founder member of the club.
All through his time spent with the Welsh B.F.C.C' he did not sit back and let others get on with it, he played a main part in the success of the club.
Along with Ray Morgan and Fred Attwell they became known as the three musketeers traveling across the country driving the van with the WelshB.F.C.C members birds inside.
He held a number of positions in the club , and his dedication resulted in him being the clubs President, an honour that we know he deeply appreciated.
On behalf of the WelshB.F.C.C. I would like to send our condolences to his family.

Linden Evans
Secretary Welsh B.F.C.C.

Ray Morgan is deeply saddened by the death of is pal Graham Winsborough, who passed away new years day we had been friends for over 40 years.
We had traveled many many miles over the country to showsGraham was one of the best.
He was my Assistant Sec. Patronage sec. and Transport manager. He was also President of our club
when I was secretary this was for 32 years.
Ann and Ray send their deepest sympathies to John, Diane, Avril and their familys.
Graham and Phillys loved their children and grandchildren and both can now rest in peace. God bless you all.

"I first became aware of Graham back in 1983 when I was going to be in Cardiff on a work course for two weeks. I contacted Ray as Secretary of the Welsh Border to ask if he could point me in the direction of someone who could help me out with a white?? He pointed me in the direction of Graham and Fred who were the transport guys of the day for the hobby in Cardiff. Graham in particular ran me about and supplied me with a couple of nice blue hens. I have kept in touch with Graham and Phyllis since that visit and last saw him as recently as 2015 I believe, when I judged Cardiff. In fact it was after getting to know the "Musketeers", Ray, Graham and Fred that I donated the Shield for Best White! Another great fancier, even though not active in the hobby for some time, passed on. A really nice man!!"

Not a good start to 2017!
