From the Chair - Talented Tony

Brian Malin

Many members will have already met the genial giant that is Tony Roberts who, with only a little persuasion (from Frankie), has bravely agreed to produce this issue of our newsletter.

He has taken some pressure off Rosemary, enabling her to enjoy a more relaxed time as secretary with all that involves - being also our representative on the committee of our parent club.

Without Rosemary’s editorial and journalistic skills we would not have had those interesting newsletters, but, I know she is grateful to have had the pressure taken off her and is more than happy to continue to write articles for us. I personally love the Ozzie adventures.

Hopefully, Tony will have enjoyed producing this newsletter and we may, perhaps, twist his arm to continue. As you know, he is a professional Fine Artist with illustration and publishing experience, so I am confident that you will enjoy the changes. He is hugely enthusiastic about his task and about Bassets. However, he cannot utilise his talents if we fail to support him by sending in articles, stories and any snippets you think might be of interest to members. It’s up to you!

(Ed. Brian, the arm-twisting is complete - I will be around as editor for some time!)
