Charlie has been a staunch supporter of the Yorkshire Canary Club for many years.

Charlie, together with his friend and near neighbour George Stephenson, will always be remembered as the two fanciers who ran the now defunct Skelmanthorpe All Yorkshire Canary Show.

This show is still remembered fondly by all Yorkie enthusuasts of the 1960's, 70's and 80's, not least for the Sheepskin rugs which Charlie gave as prizes!

Y.C.C. PRESIDENT 1992 & 1986
