I don't know how many of your bloggers will know Tom Leavers, but you may think it useful to put on a note that, sadly, Tom died this morning, after a second courageous battle with cancer. Tom was a very useful member of the BTA Committee for many years, and had previously judged their Open Show. He was always a perfect gentleman, helpful and kind to newcomers, and sympathy goes to his family. The information came from Paul Ellis, husband of Madeleine - Tom had stayed in touch with Madeleine, after both of them stopped showing. Thanks, Viv xxx
Thank you Viv our sincere condolences go out to Tom and his family. He will be sadly missed by all those who knew Tom through his love and commitment to the Bedlington.
