Vince had been actively involved in archery for over 50 years and many of our current senior archers would have much to thank Vince for in their early days.
Vince had always been very heavily involved with the juniors in Essex having organised both the Havering Youth Games and the London Youth Games for many years.
Vince was also the Havering team manager at the London Youth Games having first got involved at their inception 40 years ago and has not missed a single Games since.
I know that Vince has many friends in archery both in Essex and much farther afield.
He will be sorely missed by all of his friends.
And my deepest condolences go to his son Russell who has not only lost a father but also a friend.
As soon as funeral details are known i will ensure that everyone is made aware.
