Nottinghamshire Archery society were saddened to hear of the sudden death of Colin Telford last week.
Colin will be fondly remembered by many Nottinghamshire archers from his Regional judging duties and his constant companionship to his wife Linda who was a regular coach on the County scene.
Colin’s interest in archery came later in his life after serving in the armed forces, he was trained at Sherwood Archers where he shot compound along with his partner Linda, they were both keen club archers who helped other clubs including Burton a Joyce Archers to get started.
Colin played a pivotal role in helping Sherwood Archers to set up their new ground and has influenced many others including Mario to take up the role of County and Regional judge.
Our thoughts are with Linda and both family’s at this time and we thank Colin for all the time and effort he put into archery over his lifetime.
