It is with great sadness that we inform our members that Shane Ross passed away peacefully this morning.

Shane worked tirelessly for the National Cavy Club for many years, most recently as our Affiliation Secretary, organising the Diploma and Star competitions; she was also a well respected National Cavy Club and breed club judge.

Shane was the hardworking secretary for the Midlands Cavy club and a number of local club shows: Sheffield Cavy Club, Selston and Sherwood Cavy Club, and the cavy sections at Derby County and Moorgreen agricultural shows. In addition, she was a successful exhibitor of cavies, including Rex and Tortoise & White.

She will be sadly missed by all the clubs she worked with and by her many friends in the fancy and we send our heartfelt condolences to her family.
