Joe Maiden Vice President Leeds Horticultural Society

It was with great sadness that we received the news of Joe’s death on Thursday 17th September, 2015, after a long battle with prostate cancer.

Joe was one of the founders of Society and has worked tirelessly over many years. His presence at the Events nights and at the Leeds Flower Show always attracted people looking for gardening advice, not forgetting a joke. His tremendous knowledge was delivered with patience, kindness and with a lovely smile that could lighten up a room immediately he entered it.
Joe will be greatly missed by everyone at Leeds Horticultural Society.

BBC Radio Yorkshire has opened a book of condolence for Joe. Details can be found on the BBC website:
