HBF member notification: Stewart Baseley

I regret to inform you our executive chairman Stewart Baseley was taken into hospital on Monday evening with chest pains and was diagnosed as having had a minor heart attack. He has since had a successful operation to rectify his heart issue and is now back at home resting.

Stewart has been informed that rest, both mentally and physically, is very important to him at this stage. He will now take at least three weeks out of the business to do just that before he can start to think about coming back on a part time basis, but clearly he is going to have to liaise with his doctors to determine when exactly he will begin to return. It  will take him about three months to fully recover so we expect to see Stewart fully back in early September. 

In the meantime, Deputy Chairman, Peter Andrew and the HBF Executive team will continue to manage HBF’s activities on a day-to-day basis.

To ensure Stewart does get the rest he requires please refrain from sending him emails directly, please send them instead to either Peter ( or Marian Macdonald (
