  • Vale Roy Bierton : Sadly Roy passed away on Sunday, 17th of October at age 97 years after a very short illness with pneumonia. Roy was an OHOC member for many years and a Treasurer of OASA prior to the Jennie Bourne era. Although it was at least perhaps 10 years since he orienteered he loved to walk in Belair Park each Saturday morning which he was able to do in early October, having driven himself to the park from his home in Netley.
