It is with great sadness that the Society reports the passing of Mr George Walker from Walsall. Many long standing members will remember George with fondness and gratitude for all that he did for the Society. His “meccano” like staging served us very well for many years. George, along with his West Midlands crew, was always one of the first to arrive on show day and last to leave as the staging was dismantled and returned to the farm barn where it was stored.
He was one of the earliest recipients of the George Tarry award in 2003 together with his very good friend, Eric Smith, in recognition of his work on behalf of the Society.
Our condolences are sent to his family and local daffodil friends.
