In Memory

  • Clive Hildersley was a legend. He will be missed by many. He loved agility and was totally involved in many ways from competing, training and judging to show processing.
     

  • Mike Afia sponsored the first Midi competition at a time when the agility world thought that the Medium dogs were of too low quality for a national competition.
