It is with great regret that WAA have to advise that our Honorary Life President Digby Mansel Edwards has recently passed away. Digby was a member of St David`s Bowmen and a past Chairman of the South Wales Archery Society, which he helped found with his wife Anne back in the 1950`s. He also helped set up the Welsh Archery Federation, which was a fore runner of the WAA. Digby was also a strong supporter of the Commonwealth Games and worked tirelessly to get Archery back into the Games. Whilst he has not been active in Archery over the past few years, there are many not only in Wales but far and wide in the Archery community, who will remember him for the true gentleman that he was.
Welsh Archery Association sends condolences to his family on behalf of all archers in Wales. He will be missed.
His funeral will be held at St Isan`s Church Llanishen Cardiff on the 5th November at 11.45am.
