AND SO, FAREWELL ...

Several of us from the Groupattended Bll's funeral and I ealised, listening to the orations, just how little I kew of him. He was a very private person not into socialising, which might explain it. An excellent speakerr, he could be relied upon to give the members lively and interesting talks which we shall miss.

Marian Chaplin, mum to Vanessa the Group's Hon Sec, was a quiet unassuming person and a regular attender at our indoor meetings. She last attended in November when she brought in a lovely iced cake for the cake stall. I happened to buy it and was showing it to her when she said she had baked it, and very good it was too. Her funeral is on Feb 1st at 10.45am Worcester Crematorium. We send our condolences to Bill and Marian's families.
