JOE HENSON MBE
A brief Tribute to Joe Henson who died on 5th October 2015 aged 83 years by NRSF President Stella Lambert
NRSF’s parent body, RBST, is a very special organisation. It was built on a good idea by pioneers whose vision, determination and enthusiasm withstood much cynical opposition in the early days. One of those pioneers, Joe Henson, brought a level of leadership to that movement which has never been surpassed. Joe was the founding Chairman of RBST and his energy, showmanship and sheer commitment was a catalyst which drew a huge range of people and talents into the movement.
Throughout his life his influence and example were beacons for others to follow. Beyond his lifetime, Joe’s influence will live on for so long as there are people of like mind to follow his example. We were privileged that he accepted the office of NRSF President. In true Henson spirit he fulfilled that role with great dignity and gave our organisation the gravitas which only someone of his stature could bring.
oe Henson will forever be synonymous with the conservation and promotion of Britain’s native breeds and those of us who carry on with this in our lifetimes will be paying the greatest possible tribute to the memory of one who managed to turn his farming dream into reality.
There will be a service to celebrate his life at St John The Baptist Church , Market Place, Cirencester at 1.15pm on Tuesday 20th October followed by a reception at Cirencester Agricultural University.
