Some of you may have heard that sadly Dave Church died on Boxing Day after falling 80ft on Cautley Spout, near Kirkby Stephen.
Dave was the Durham Tri Club Chairman during the early 1990's, he coached the Friday evening swim session for several years and organised many club events. His home was our "clubhouse" for post-event parties and he was always available for help and advice.
His enthusiasm was infectious and whatever he took part in he did so to the max. A great guy who will be missed by everyone.
We would like to pass our condolences to his friends and family who are in our thoughts at this difficult time.
