Sue Reeves lost her battle to cancer on 4 March 2015, after a long and valiant fight. She was a figure in poodles and agility for many years, and a long-serving officer of the PTC. Sue introduced many poodle owners to agility and is much missed. She was instrumental in starting the PTC and in ensuring we had a competition each year, one that allowed poodles to shine and gave us all a great event and meet-up each year.
Bob Ratcliffe died suddenly in March 2016. Bob and his Acecliffe poodles were keen competitors in agility; his joy in both agility and his poodles was contagious and he was always welcoming to newcomers to the sport. We have Bob to thank for many years of PTC shows, where he was always on hand with his camera to document poodle successes (as well as entertaining bloopers). He and Wendy ran the Benbow agility club and brought specialist poodle knowledge to training the next generation of poodle competitors.
