It is with great sadness that we have to announce that our oldest club member John Bird (JB), has passed away on the afternoon of the 13th June after a short illness. John was previously a very active member within the club, and was the Chief Marshal for our Caerwent rallies for many years. He also regularly marshalled on events and was regularly found helping run test sessions at the Walters Arena complex. He has been a big part of Forresters Car Club for many years, and is known far and wide as the face of Forresters. There are many stories of his kindness and generosity and he’s been a huge part of the motorsport career of many of our members.
John’s connection with the club remained strong even though he moved to Blackpool to be near his family 14 months ago. A sad loss to all at Forresters Car Club, and someone that will remain in our memories for long to come. RIP JB
