LOSS OF ANOTHER GROUP MEMBER

It was just over a year ago that I had the unhappy task of reporting the death of Harold Markham, and hoped it would be some while before I had to report the demise of yet another of our members. Sadly, the task has come round sooner than I wished and it is with regret that I inform you of the death of Pat Cox, wife of the late Rev Edward Cox. Pat and Edward had been members of the Group for many years and were regulars on the overnight trips. Keen naturalists, they would often be found fossicking along the beach for interesting items, or peering at some unsuspecting caterpillar or bug in Edward's magnifying bug box. It isn't the same without them, and just as we miss Harold, and Betty and Bob et al, so we shall miss Pat and Edward. Our condolences go to the family.
