It is with great sadness we inform our members Doreen Brook passed away peacefully at her home on 30th April 2023.
This came as a shock to everyone. Doreen had been battling illness, recovered and been given the all clear from 2 different types of cancer over the last 2 years. However unexpectedly died in her sleep, surrounded by her dogs and at home with her husband.
Doreen recently became the first female president elect of the IHS. Working incredibly hard for the society since 2008 where she was appointed the membership secretary. Been an invaluable, much loved part of the day to day workings.
Anyone attending or exhibiting at our shows will have met her. Fiercely strong woman with a huge love of animals. Her presence will be missed, even more so at the shows.
We ask at this time you respect Richard and their family’s space. If anyone would like to send on their condolences, please can you send these to, where we will pass these on.
