THE LATE MR
It is with much sadness that we have to report the death in
early January 2017 of our Club President Mr John Willetts, of Tanworth
Airedales. John joined our committee in 1991 and served as Club Treasurer
from 1992 to 2014, and was President of the Midland Counties Airedale Terrier
Club at the time of his death. The committee of MCATC would like to offer
their sincere condolences to John's family and friends on his passing - he was a
well liked and much valued friend to us all who put in a great deal of hard work
and effort throughout the many years he was involved with the club and he will
be greatly missed.
As many of you will be aware, John was due to judge the MCATC Open Show on
Sunday 12th February. We are pleased to advise that Mrs Christine Keay (Jaymitch)
has kindly agreed to be our judge on 12th February in his place.
Details of John's funeral will be posted here when they are available.

important reminder from the Kennel Club which is particularly timely during the
summer months, but which is important throughout the year, as even on what may
seem like cooler days cars can still heat up very quickly. Please
