Bromsgrove Photographic Society is sad to record the passing of one of its members, John Dignum, on Saturday 30th July following illness.
John joined the Society along with his partner Jan Harris in 2014. He held the position of General Committee member and was responsible for the “Bring & Buy” table. He was also very quick to volunteer for any other Society activities. At the last AGM he was elected to the position of Vice Chair, a position which he greatly relished and hoped to do a lot with. He did enjoy keeping the Committee in order and observing correct meeting etiquette.
His main activity was table tennis and he was actively involved in the English Table Tennis Association, traveling the country. He also ran a table tennis club at Arrowvale sports centre on a Sunday night coaching young and old alike and organising league teams.
Until about 5 years ago he ran and coached at a kick boxing club in Redditch and was still an active member of a bonsai club. Only until just recently he had his own printing consumables business selling re-manufactured inks and toners. In connection with the business, he attended many of the local business networking groups.
John is survived by his two daughters and four grandchildren.
He will be much missed by Jan, all his family and friends.
