It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of our President, David Horne, on the morning of Wednesday 17th December 2008 after a very short illness.
David was a local man, he attended local schools, and apart from National Service and University, had lived here all his life.
He was in private practice as an Architect and was held in considerable regard in his profession.
David was a founder member of the Civic Society and remained very active in it to the end.  Up to the time of his final illness he was working on a project to present awards for architectural work of high quality in the area. 
Newcastle was very dear to his heart and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
