It is with regret that we have to inform you of the death yesterday 2 April, of Mike Brook as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID 19) epedemic.
Mike was a member of the Norwich Society who for so many years dominated the Society Class and other classes at Harrogate Spring Show along with Dr Fisher, Geoff Bell and Paul Payne.
Mike had in recent years journeyed many times to the USA and Southern Hemisphere to the Daffodil Shows and Conventions and had made a great number of friends there as a result of the trips that he made. He had only just returned from the show in Dallas on 19 March and was perhaps the last of the UK contingent to return from there having suffered a number of cancelled flights which may have resulted in his infection.
I personally had stayed with Mike and his wife when judging the Norwich Daffodil Show and they were wonderful hosts. Our thoughts are with the family at this time.
If you wish to send a card to his wife Anne, who is also ill, and daughter Rachel the address is Barn End, Grimmer Lane, Cantley, Norwich, Norfolk NR13 3SB
