We have just heard the shock news that Alan Turvey passed away this morning. Alan served the County as Secretary for several years and was President of both HIBA in 2000/1 and EIBA in 2006/7

He also worked tirelessly as Chairman of the Old Basing outdoor club and he will be greatly missed by many and our thoughts are with his family at this sad time
