Chris House our chairman, who died on Monday 11th November 2019, from a brain tumour was a staunch supporter of VAWM from its inception in 2004. His death was a great shock to all of us since he had been alive and well and riding to hounds at our last meeting on Bodmin moor in October 2018.
He became chairman of VAWM in 2014 providing wise and supportive counsel, often attending meetings on our behalf. He was particularly effective in promoting our cause with the students of his alma mater. He qualified from the RVC in 1978 and was in practice with his wife Jane in Ingatestone, Essex.
He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. We send great sympathy to his wife Jane, who like Chris is a strong supporter of VAWM.
