It is with much sadness that we report that Fred Sheppard died in the evening of Sunday 4th January.

He suffered a severe stroke in September and shortly before Christmas he was re-admitted to hospital suffering from a urinary infection. A few days ago he developed a chest infection, which progressed to pneumonia and he died peacefully last evening.

His fencing friends will be welcome at his funeral and details will be circulated when available.

British Fencing wish to pass on its condolences to Fred’s family and friends.
