It is with great sadness that the agility world learnt that John Gilbert died yesterday.
John was a major player in steering the growth of agility in this country from the 1970's. He became an active member in the formation of The Agility Club in 1983 and held the position of editor of The Voice for many years. He also held a position on the Kennel Club Liaison Committee for many years.
John's wisdom and advice was always given freely to all who had the pleasure of meeting and talking to him and the shape of agility today owes much to the work that he did.
He will be greatly missed and our thoughts go out to his family.
Rest in Peace John
Treasurer, The Agility Club
