Bradford’s world-famous Topic Folk Club is mourning the loss of its treasurer David Robey.

Mr Robey, who had been an active member of the club for more than three decades, died on March 11 after a short illness.

Although he lived in Ovenden, near Halifax and relied on public transport, he seldom missed a night, said the Topic's Tony Charnock.

Mr Charnock added: “David was a loyal and active member of the club for more than 30 years. He was well-known for his meticulous attention to the detail of its finances which cannot be overstated.

“He will be very much missed by his friends at the Topic.”

Mr Robey’s funeral is on Monday at Park Wood Crematorium, Park Road, Elland, at 2.15pm.
