In Memoriam

The Chairman and Committee of the E.C.C.T.G. wish to express their very sincere sympathy to the families of three of our Honorary members who have died recently.  Those of us who are fortunate enough to have known these three remarkable ladies  remember them with great respect and fondness; they will be sadly missed.

Rest In Peace Mrs. Julian Leycester Roxby, Mrs. Margaret Garner and Miss Joyce Benson.

Mrs. Julian Leycester Roxby has lived in Cornwall for the last fifteen years or so, but previously had been a keen and active member of the Club for many years.  Those of us who jumped at Lanni’s will recall that Mrs. L.R. and her faithful charger Chancer between them topped one hundred years as they happily and successfully negotiated Jimmy Roocroft’s courses!

Mrs. Margaret Garner was a vital member of the Club’s Social Committee (which alas no longer exists) – delicious home cooking and great organisational skills – some cracking Presentation Suppers in years gone by, and we had a quarter of a century of wonderful cross country competitions at Marton Hall Farm as guests of Bob and Margaret.

Miss Joyce Benson was our Chairman for several years and an internationally known figure in the world of Dressage.  She played a considerable part in establishing and maintaining high standards of Dressage for our Club and region; she organised Open Dressage Competitions at her home at Little Budworth and introduced the first Grand Prix in this area.  Mr. Bryan Struss, past President, a close friend of Joyce and her sisters, has written an obituary for her. Joyce’s family would like to thank members and former members of the ECCTG for their support at this difficult time.  There were those who attended or were represented at the funeral and also those who sent messages of condolence;  all helped them to get through this unexpected and very sad period. 

*** Congratulations Tyler! European CIC** Silver Medallist ***

Congratulations to our very own Tyler Cassells who was representing Great Britain this weekend, riding Grandslam at the European CIC** Rural Riders Championships. Tyler posted an impressive 49.3 dressage for 15th place, moved up to 8th after a fast clear cross country and climbed a further 4 places after a clear show jumping. An amazing performance that also helped Team GB clinch the silver medal. Well done Tyler and all your support team!!
