We regret to announce that John Hardy, one of LOK’s longest standing members, died on 21st March. Over the years, John took on many roles in the Klubb, including that of Chair from 2004 – 2006.

With Catherine Galvin, he inaugurated the Trent Park Boxing Day Score event in 1992 which is now an annual fixture. In many years he was the organiser but, more recently, John has been in charge of the ever-popular mulled wine. In 2010 he reported on a snowy race admitting his was the only injury: he sliced open his finger when cutting the fruit for the wine.

Orienteering and singing with Southgate Opera were two very important activities for John. Recently as his health deteriorated , he was unable to carry on competing, but he nevertheless made a big effort to get to Klubb events such as the summer park races, the AGM and the Christmas dinner.

The Klubb sends its condolences to his wife Betty and their children Geoffrey, Stella and Catherine. God bless John.
