John Payne 1932 - 2017
Sadly I have to report the death of former vets fencer John Payne from heart failure at the age of 85.
He achieved considerable success over the years in competitions around the country and was one of the founder members of the Veterans fencing movement.
His funeral takes place on the 3rd July, 10 45am at Bournemouth Crematorium.
If you have any memories of John please send them to me John Mason and I will add them to an obituary page.

Suggested European Events
Three accessible events in Europe are suggested for any vet wanting to get some experience before the European Championships in May.
Membership is open to Men and Women aged 40 or over or who become 40 in the current calendar year.
This is the same as saying if you are 40 or more on December 31st then you are a vet.
Vets events such as the European or World Championships have a similar rule: your qualifying age is your age on December 31st this year.
BVF Committee meetings
If you have any matters that you wish the committee to consider please email Marcia Stretch
The minutes of meetings can be found on the Committee page.
