LAURIE TAITT (1934 - 2006)
Laurie Taitt, who was one of Britain's top sprint hurdlers in the 1960's has died aged 72. Taitt, who competed for Herne Hill Harriers, began as a half-miler and high jumper at school but made his real mark as a sprint hurdler where he took the bronze medal at the Perth Commonwealth Games in 1962, representing England.
Born in British Guiana, he reached the sprint hurdles semi-final representing his native country at the 1958 then Empire Games in Cardiff. He gained his first British international vest in 1962 when he was runner-up and first UK finisher in the AAA championships. The following year he won the AAA indoor and outdoor sprint hurdles titles and at that time held the UK indoor records for 60 yards and 60m hurdles. He represented Britain at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics and also competed in the 1962 and 1966 European Championships and 1966 Commonwealth Games in Kingston, Jamaica.
He gained around a dozen international vests and was Herne Hill's most capped athlete. He was also a competent high jumper and admitted his most pleasing performance was clearing 1.88m in 1961. He won the Surrey 120 yards hurdles title from 1960 to 1965 and also won the County Decathlon championship in 1959 (5842pts = 5959pts on current scoring tables) and won the Inter-Counties championship four times from 1961 to 1963 and in 1966. His last competitive season was 1966. His fastest time for 120 yards hurdles was 14.1 which he achieved on three occaisions. He also had personal bests of 3.35m for the Pole Vault and 6.74m for the Long Jump.
Although he did not posess great flat speed (10.3 for 100 yards), Laurie was a superb technician over the 3'6" barriers. He would snake over them with an exaggerated lean and won many races with his superior technique over much faster men who could leave him metres behind in a pure sprint race. Students of sprint hurdling often studied loop film of Laurie Taitt in action during the 1960's.
He ran a stall in Kensington's famous indoor market for many years and was an accomplished potter.

JEAN PECK
It is, with regret, we learn that Jean Peck passed away on 7th October following a prolonged period of ill health. Jean's primary involvement had been as Secretary of Selsonia Ladies AC. She became Hon Secretary of Surrey County WAAA, and in 1978 became their President (as was her husband Maurice in 1981). She was also Surrey Women's Team Manager. Subsequently she sat on both Southern (SCWAAA) and National (WAAA) committees. She was a Track Referee and later became a Great Britain Team Manager. She spent her latter years living in Hastings. Her funeral will take place on Wednesday 18 October 2006.

DAVID WHEELER
David Wheeler, the father of one of Britain's most promising teenage shot putters, Michael Wheeler, collapsed and died while watching his son training at Crystal Palace on 7th June. Wheeler, 43, who was a competitive thrower with Herne Hill Harriers in the 1980's and 1990's introduced his son to the sport when he was 11-year-old and was instrumental in helping to guide him to the level he has achieved so far.
More recently, 14-year-old Michael has come under the wing of former international shot putter Mike Winch and it was one of Winch's training sessions he was attending last week when the tragedy occurred. Wheeler senior, who travelled with his son to virtually every competition he took part in, also helped other Herne Hill throwers, including Jade Dodd and Briony Phillips.
"This is quite awful news," said Herne Hill general secretary Steve Bosley. "David took Michael everywhere and was a great influence in his athletics. As a club we will obviously see what we can now do to help and support Michael."
David's funeral took place on Tuesday 20th June 12.30 pm at St Stephens Church, Warwick Road, Thornton Heath, Surrey.

BRUCE JUDD
A service of thanksgiving for Bruce Judd was held at St Nicolas Parish Church, Cranleigh on 5 June 2006. It was attended by family and friends including colleagues on the Surrey County Committee and contemporaries of Bruce from Walton AC. An address was given by Derek Crookes and the following is based upon that and the remarks made by the Rector, the Rev'd Canon Nigel Nicholson.
Those of us in the Athletics community knew of his activities in and around the sport but we learnt how he and Eileen had been very involved in the local community. Bruce was a member of the local Robbie Burns Society and became very involved with the schemes to help orphans in Romania.
Bruce's active athletic career was with Walton AC where he achieved a high standard in Road, Cross Country and Track over the middle and long distances. The main focus for the club over the winter months were the Southern Area 12-stage relay, the London to Brighton in October and the National event (also London to Brighton) in March. Bruce was, at various times, Captain and Team Manager of the Walton teams which held their own with the best in these events. This obviously meant a lot of administration by Bruce as well as competing. Bruce ran well on the track in races with the likes of Gordon Pirie, Peter Driver and Chris Chattaway.
At the time when Bruce was running his training and competition had to be fitted around a working week where Saturday working, at least half a day, but some times a full day, was the norm. He was an engineer with Cooper (the world-famous motor racing marque) in Surbiton. The story was told where Bruce received an invitation for a race a Chiswick on a Saturday - a day that he was working all day. He worked out that he could travel from work to Chiswick, race, and then get back to work without his absence causing much attention. Unfortunately, he had not reckoned on the race being televised and he was spotted by one of his managers! Luckily Bruce did not loose his job and, no doubt made up the time and probably gained in the esteem of his colleagues. One of his roles at Cooper was a significant involvement in the initial Mini Cooper project.
In his active days and later a characteristic of Bruce was his modesty with regard to his achievements. Clearly he was a very loyal team man. Following this he went into officiating and administration. In addition to roles he held at Walton AC, including running their successful road relaya for many years, he became a committee member of the South of the Thames CC Association and was their president in 1994/1995. He also joined the Surrey County AA Committee and was our President in 1995/1996.
The vast amount of hard work done can be seen from the number of County sub-committees he was involved with:-
(a)Road - this included visiting road races in the County to check on such things as Course Marshalling, First Aid, Refreshments and checking for points of danger.
(b)Championships - as meeting secretary for the Young Athletes CC Relays, the Veterans Championships and the main CC Championships he was a key member.
(c)Coaching & Development - where he liaised with Regional and County Development Officers to provide opportunities for promising young athletes to further their goals.
One proviso for all his hard work was that there had to be at least 3 free weekends for him to go to Scotland (his roots were Scottish) to visit family and to see his favourite football team - Falkirk.
His officiating duties included being a Track Judge and a Recorder. Several people have described Bruce as unflappable. One example of this occurred at a Surrey Youth Games where he was the Chief Judge with only one assistant. A 100 Metres race had five competitors all wearing number 4! Calmly, a result was obtained by quickly writing down such features as: Blue Shorts, Long hair, Glasses etc on the result card.
In spite of the difficulties inherent with the roles he has undertaken Bruce was never derogatory about anyone. He was a high-class athlete, official and administrator. Bruce was characterised as quiet and unassuming - a person who got on with things, often in the background, not seeking any personal glory - a real gentleman. He will be greatly missed.
