December 2012
It is with sadness that we report on the passing of Harry Green of Culcheth, Warrington. Harry was a long-standing member of The BKKS Northern Section and then The Northern Koi Club. Although he not been to meetings for some time, his interest had, in fact, been reintroduced and he had started to come to meetings again during 2012.

Harry originally had a large pond (see photo right - taken in July 1989 by Liz Donlan) in his front garden and he had a very good collection of koi which were entered into some of the club's shows. Both Harry & Jean regularly welcomed members of other clubs on coach trips as well as the club having events there - such as Open Days and Afternoon Cream Teas. Latterly the pond had got too much for Harry to handle and so he had downsized.

Harry died on 20th December, 2012 of a heart attack. His funeral will be held on Friday, 4th January, 2013 at 11.00am at New Church, Parish Church, Culcheth, Warrington.
