Dear All,

Our former Secretary and Registration Secretary Ian Brown has unfortunately, suddenly and sadly died at his home on Friday the 2nd March 2018.
“Words cannot express the shock and sadness that we all feel at the LMC,” as
“Ian’s immense presence in the past will be irreplaceable.”
“A hugely popular figure with a reputation of being a forthright, direct, a blunt Yorkshire man, (calling a spade a spade), but also being extremely helpful and accommodating at times.”
He was connected with both Harrogate JFL for a number of years as Secretary before setting up the Harrogate JGFL in the season 2003-2004 with Joe Billington & Cllr Cliff Trotter.

When Ian stepped down as Secretary he continued his role as Registration Secretary for both the Harrogate JFL & the Harrogate JGFL with great diligence, before retiring on the 19th October 2015 and being given the title of Vice President for the Harrogate JGFL.

Our thoughts are with his family and he will be sadly missed.

The LMC will hold a minute’s silence before their LMC meeting at Starbeck WMC on Tuesday the 6th March 2018 and Ian’s family would be grateful for any donations to be made to the British Heart Foundation.
