We were sorry to learn of the death of Roger Ffooks on 29th August 2015.

 

Roger’s grandfather, E Archdall Ffooks was one of the early promoters of the Dorset Arts and Crafts Association, chairing one or two of the committee meetings in 1909 and 1911.   Our treasurer had been in touch with Roger recently and discovered he was a keen woodworker.  Roger was delighted to make contact with the Association and entered work in the 2014 and 2015 exhibitions.

 

Roger was highly respected in the shipping world and a brief obituary can be found here

 

The Association was represented at Roger’s funeral by our treasurer, Roger Caves.
