It is with great Sadness that i have to advise that a long time member of the ACDS Rob Allport sadly passed away this morning after a long battle with Cancer.

On behalf of all the members of the New South Wales branch of the Australian Carriage Driving Society I would like to offer my condolences to the members of Bob's family and friends.
Robert Allport was a long time member of our society and gave so much of his time to a sport he was passionate about, always a friend to those that needed his help and did so much for junior drivers.
Rob you will be missed by us all.
