It is with great sadness that the Academy has received the news of the passing of Geoff Griffin. Geoff Griffin founded Crawley Sword Club 60 years ago. He passed on his passion for fencing to many and has inspired generations of fencers within the Sussex county. He was a driving force behind fencing at Crawley for generations, placing emphasis on etiquette, discipline and ultimately fun for all. He will be greatly missed by everyone at Crawley Sword Club and the Academy extends its sympathies to his family at this sad time.
