Waterways elder statesman dies

Tony Mason, National Vice President and Vice Chairman of the Association of Waterways Cruising Clubs and President of Pewsey Wharf Boat Club on the Kennet & Avon Canal, died on 18 September.  His funeral took place at Kingsdown Crematorium, Swindon on 29 September.

Kay Wardle of Pewsey Wharf Boat Club said, "Tony joined PWBC soon after it was in formed in 1972 — when the Long Pound was a muddy ditch.  He was always very active in the club and he held a number of senior committee posts. He will be sorely missed."

Roland Dotchin of the AWCC said, "There are many admirers of the work Tony did over so many years, on behalf of AWCC and our waterways. We are sad at the loss of another of the waterways senior statemen, he will be greatly missed.

A full appreciation of Tony's life and his contribution to the waterways will follow.
