It is with great regret that we report the peaceful death of Mrs. Iris Diamond, who with Mrs. Wendy Ashton founded our Club over fifty years ago. Mrs. Diamond was the original Secretary, and hosted competitions at her home near Jodrell Bank; she ensured that turnout, manners and organisation were priorities, and woe betide any member who failed to come up to her high standards. Her example and attention to detail were instrumental in laying the sound foundations for the successes the Club has achieved over the years. Accompanied by her Alsatian Jess and then her successors she played a huge part in ECCTG and then Pony Club activities and gave a lifetime of interest, helpful advice and support. Time took its toll and she eventually moved into a home where she ensured standards were maintained until her amazing one hundred and one years drew to a close. She was supported by her three daughters Marion, Sue and our own Ann (now competing at Advanced Medium with her lovely Ben) and we extend our deepest sympathy to them and to all the family. We will not see her like again, and all who knew her benefited from her strict but kind attitude to life.
