With sadness we report that Max Hawkins passed away on the 2nd November. Max was the PRO for the Devon & Cornwall Point to Point Association from 1980 to 1995. He started and organised the highly successful Association end of season Dinner and Dance and Area Award presentations, successfully arranging well known speakers such as Michael Williams, Richard Pitman, Mic Fitzgerald, Richard Phillips, Monica Dickinson and Jimmy Frost to attend. He was a long standing correspondent of Point to Pointing to the local and regional press. Max acted as Senior Steward at many courses in Devon and Cornwall and encouraged many of our stewards, who act today to support the sport in this manner. He acted as race judge mainly at Newton Abbot and Haldon plus other courses in the region. Max was totally committed and passionate about our sport in the South West and leaves many friends and memories of some great days pointing and horse racing behind him.

Funeral arrangements – Exeter Crematorium on Monday 16th November at 1.15pm.
