MRS VERA CLARKE
We were extremely saddened to learn of the death during August of long time
MCATC committee member Mrs Vera Clarke. For many years Vera and her
husband Trevor (our Club Vice President) have generously and very kindly allowed
us to use their lovely home and gardens in Bewdley to host our annual BBQ and
fancy dress competition, an event which has been extremely popular over the
years. Vera and Trevor also regularly helped out at our club shows, most
notably running the kitchen and making sure there were refreshments for
everyone, which as we all know is one of the most important jobs of all at a
show! Vera was a popular and well liked lady who will be much missed, and
we are sure members will join with us in sending our sincere condolences to
Trevor and their family on their sad loss.
Vera's funeral will take place at 2 pm on Tuesday 1st September 2015 at St
Paul's Church, Blackheath (Halesowen) - address Long Lane, Halesowen B62 9LH.
All are welcome to attend and join the family afterwards for refreshments at St
Paul's Church Hall in Vicarage Road.
Trevor and family would also like to confirm that this year's BBQ & Fancy Dress
Competition on Sunday 13th September will go ahead as planned, as Vera always
enjoyed the day so much - so please do come along and join us.

DOGS LEFT UNATTENDED IN CARS - an
important reminder from the Kennel Club which is particularly timely during the
summer months, but which is important throughout the year, as even on what may
seem like cooler days cars can still heat up very quickly. Please

leaving dogs unattended in cars - entitled 'Don't Cook Your Dog'.
