Mr Leckie, 64, served on Scone’s Committee for 23 years with more than 20 of those years spent as either Vice-Chairman or Chairman.

“Without doubt Noel’s efforts landed Scone its stand-alone Saturday meeting and remains the only country club to have one.”

The two-day Scone Cup Carnival was first staged in 2011 is now entrenched as one of the country’s biggest race carnivals.

“I am personally saddened by Noel’s passing. He was the complete gentleman and a fine human being who will be greatly missed,” added Mr V’landys.
