Roy Cooke

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of the Northern BS Secretary Roy Cooke. Roy served the Northern BS as Secretary with distinction for 28 years and will be sadly missed by all who knew him. He was a member of the BS for 37 years and in 2017 was awarded the Peter Sanderson Memorial Trophy for Show Administrator of the Year.

Roy’s funeral will be held on Friday 9th November at 12.15 at the Baptist Chapel, Durham Road, Blackhill, DH8 8JG. Refreshments will be at the same venue after the service. Roy’s widow Marion has requested no flowers and donations on the day will be given to the Sir Bobby Robson Trust for Cancer Research.

Our deepest sympathies are sent to Marion and Roy’s family and friends at this extremely sad time.
