It is with deep sadness that I have learned about the sudden death of Chris Vale on Tuesday 17th March 2015 at the age of 69.  I only knew Chris from shooting with him at Throckmorton Shooting Ground.  Chris loved his clay shooting as he did game shooting and golf.  Our condolences go out to his wife Sandra and also his children and grandchildren.  He will be missed by many people.  The funeral will take place on Tuesday 14th April at Willersey Church, Broadway at 12.30pm.



It is with deep sadness that I announce the death of David Eynon on 8th May at 66 years old, after a long illness.  David was a very proud Welshman and staunch Countryman who started shooting at 12 years old.  He was an excellent clay and game shooter and was a coach with the Institute of Shooting Instructors.  He also refereed many Game Fair shoots and was well known throughout the local shooting community especially at Hereford SG, Hereford.  Our condolences go out to his wife Ann and family.  His funeral will be held on Friday 30th May at 1.30 at Powick Church    



It is with very deep sadness that I announce the passing of Rita Sealey on April 29th 2014 aged 77 years old.  Rita was a wonderful friend, shooting coleague and a past member of the Hereford & Worcester CPSA Committee.  She won many various County Championships and was always called on to represent the County Ladies team at West Midlands Inter County Sporting, Skeet, All Round and DTL Championships, which they won on many occassions.  She was also in the Hereford & Worcester Ladies team that won the National Inter County Skeet Championships in 2003.  In 1999 she went on to win the Ladies section at the prestigious Clubman Championship.  Rita leaves her husband Alan, sons Jeff and Stuart, daughters Debbie, Rebecca and Rachel, family and friends and of course many others, not just in Hereford & Worcester but throughout the shooting community that knew her.  We will all miss her.

Her funeral is at the Redditch Crem on Monday 12th May at 11am.  If you are attending the family have asked that you wear something green, as this was Rita's favourite colour.

It is with great sadness that I learnt of the death of Peter Davies on December 27th.  Peter, whom everyone knew as 'Cutter', will be greatly missed by the shooting community throughout Herefordshire and beyond.  He was the founder of Checkley Clay Club and ran it almost single handed for over 30 years.  He was responsible for encouraging dozens of newcomers into the sport, myself included.  He freely gave his time to worthy causes and over the years had raised many thousands of pounds with his charity shoots.  Peter was a true country character with a wicked sense of humour.  His passing has left a gap that will be impossible to fill.



Bob Jones was a past member and  Treasurer of the Hereford & Worcester CPSA Committee.   There will be many of you out there who didn't know Bob but I do know that there will many of you that knew him and competed with him.  He had been ill for some time and we send our sympathy out to his Son, Daughter and Grandchildren.
