Sadly in January 2007 Wychbold Swan Rescue lost a very dear friend.

Vernon Hackett was a great character, he was always active with a wide range of interests from scrambling to Line Dancing, but as his wife Joyce will tell you his great passion was swans, nothing was too much trouble to rescue a swan in need.  Thank you Vernon for all that you have done, you will be sadly missed by all at Wychbold Swan Rescue.

It was with great sadness that we were told of the death of a great friend of Wychbold Swan Rescue.  Les kept an eye out for the wildlife on the River Avon  and surrounding area of Stratford.  He was always there for the swans for whom he had a great affection.  We are not sure if he adopted the swans or the swans adopted him, what we are sure of is that the swans and other wildlife benefitted from his dedication to them
