The End of an Era
In memory of Bob Tunks

 

It is with some sadness that the Society reflects on the death of our much loved Flower Arranging Judge, Bob Tunks, who passed away on the 29th December 2019 aged a very impressive 92.

Bob was a lovely man, a great friend of the Society, with a wonderful sense of humour and a phenomenal wealth of stories and anecdotes. He has been judging our Flower Arranging Classes for the last 17 years, his little notes to the Exhibitors were a source of amusement and enlightenment to our visitors as well as a great
source of help and encouragement to the Exhibitors themselves.

Over the years he has given a number of talks, as part of our winter Wednesday evening programme. Members have been awed at the speed of his demonstrations and have been ‘over the moon’ when they have won one of his creations in the raffle. His talks and demonstration always included amusing snippets from his days as a hairdresser and the antics of his Brides and their Mothers when he was preparing wedding flowers.

Thank you Bob Tunks, your memory will always bring a smile to our faces
