The Club were extremely saddened to hear that Doreen Gately has passed away.
Doreen and husband Bill were well renowned, respected and dedicated breeders of Welsh Springers for some 40 plus years under the famous Russethill affix producing many Show Champions including the Breed Record holder - Sh Ch. Russethill Royal Salute over Nyliram .
A lovely lady of immense character, Doreen was well known for her hospitality, for many years organising and running the wonderful ‘parties‘ held at Blackpool Championship Show.
All who knew her would agree she will be very sadly missed.
Our sincere condolences extend to Bill and family at this sad time. RIP Doreen .
