Sadly, Dawn Duce died in March. Dawn, together with husband Maurice, a former President of NRSF, founded the Roughland Flock (Number 292 in the Combined Flock Book) in the early days of the rare breeds movement. Each were familiar faces across the show circuit and Dawn in particular a 'larger than life' personality. Her funeral was well attended and rare breeds enthusiasts were plentiful in bidding her farewell.
