There was also a special presentation to Mrs Ann Locker III Degree (Sunnybank) who has had a rather large input over the last 10-12 years not only locally in the North-West but Nationally, as an Umpire at many UKTA Championships.

Sadly she will be missed as she emigrates to Tennerife (Spain) in early July, she has assured us that she will be making frequent visits to the North-West as she has handed complete control of Sunnbank TKD School to her son.
Mr Denny Locker III Degree. Mrs Locker has informed us that she is hoping to start a TKD School in Tennerife. So watch this space!
