During my tenure as chairman of Visit Herefordshire, I asked John Challis if he would become one of my ambassadors to help promote the county, J.C. readily agreed. He was charming, funny and extremely generous with his time even though he was very busy. RIP J.C. and thank you for everything you have done for Herefordshire.

As one of my constituents when I was parish councillor for John Challis and his wife I am very sad to hear he has gone. He was so active right to the end and very supportive of local causes. He was also very helpful as patron of Ludlow Assembly Rooms and protecting the wonderful countryside of Herefordshire from unnecessary development.
