More sad news to impart I’m afraid. Our President Lyn Westby (Lowerpark) sadly passed away yesterday (28th Dec). She was 93 yrs old and had many years Collie experience.

She owned Collies since the 1950’s and made up several Chs. Between 1968 & 1979 she was Sec of L & PCC and, after moving further north to Ongar, she was elected onto the EACA committee in 1980.

She was elected EACA Chairman in 1988 and held this role until 2007 when she was invited to become President.

 Lyn had oodles of canine experience and will be sadly missed. Her daughter Sharon will keep us informed of funeral arrangements, but thinks there will be some delay (funeral directors and crems are being overworked at present!)



The funeral will be on Thursday  18th January at 10.30am at the Round Church, Church Road, Little Maplestead nr Halstead,
Essex C09 2RG & afterwards at the King’s Head, The Street, Pebmarsh nr Halstead C09 2NH

 Lyn’s daughter, Sharon, would like to know who is attending so can folk please let her know at
