Obituary: Robert Bull

The sudden death of Robert Bull on May 26th will have come as an enormous shock to his many friends in the North Craven Heritage Trust. Robert and Audrey were staying with friends in France, en route for their holiday home, when Robert was struck down by a heart attack.

He had been an active member of the Trust since he and Audrey retired to Settle. He was the distributor for Upper Settle for a number of years, and latterly had been a hard working member of the Committee. For the last two years he had taken on the task of organising the annual visit of the Leeds Parish Choir, and in fact he had been making arrangements for the 1995 recital just before setting off for France. He was also an enthusiastic member of Craven Camerata and had sung tenor in all the Camerata's Heritage Trust concerts over the last twelve years.

Robert had an ability to listen to people's concerns and ideas and then to give sensitive and thoughtful advice on possible courses of action. This skill made him a particularly valuable member of the Trust committee, and he will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with Audrey and the whole family in their sadness.
