Dr Mike Budd

Ross Rowing Club’s annual regatta dinner at the Chase Hotel was tinged with an air of sadness with the very sad passing of Dr Mike Budd. “Doc Budd” as he was fondly known was a key club coach for many years and arguably set the foundations for the clubs current success. 

He was very well known in rowing circles, having been a coach at Hereford and Hereford Cathedral rowing clubs in the 1970’s and 1980’s. His contribution to rowing in the area was huge and he will be greatly missed. His funeral is planned for Friday 5th November at St Mary’s Church Ross. Visit the Ross Rowing Club website for details.
