It is with sadness that we report the death from cancer of Nick Channer in July following a short illness. Nick lived in the Newbury area all of his life until his move to Coventry about 8 years ago.

Nick was born in Woolhampton and was a professional author. Besides writing over 50 books, including "Pub Walks in West Berkshire", Nick wrote extensively for newspapers and magazines including The Daily Telegraph, Country Walking and Country Life

He was an active Liberal Democrat and delivering leaflets and helped in campaigning and fundraising. Many of us enjoyed his guided walks with tea and cakes or winter soup and crumble refreshments. Nick would always recce the walk and research information and stories along the route beforehand even if that meant an extra journey from Coventry.

Many Lib Dems as well as his friends in the area will mourn his passing. We are hoping to arrange a memorial walk later this year.
