It is with sadness that we report that Ben Goring passed away suddenly on Boxing Day. Ben was a stalwart member and friend of the Wye Valley Retriever Club. He helped with Club events and gave valuable advice and encouragement to others during training sessions. He was a wonderful man and will be greatly missed.  Our sincere condolences go to Sue, Emily and George and Ben’s extended family.

private family Service of Committal will take place at Hereford Crematorium on the 18th January.

A Celebration of Ben’s life will take place at Dorstone Court (HR3 6BE) at 12 midday on Saturday, January 19th. Dress for the country. No flowers, but donations if desired please to the Motor Neurone Disease Association, Dorstone Village Hall and Friends of St. Faith’s Bells Restoration.

If you have any memories and would like to share them there will be a book available on the day to write them in, or please jot them down beforehand and leave by the book.
