Sue Smith

In July, I and other members of the Group, attended the funeral of Sue a long serving group member. Sue had been ill for some time and had not been seen at indoor meetings or other activities for some while. Many of us will remember her for her sterling service over many years providing nuts, seeds and fat balls for purchase by members at our indoor meetings; sad to say we haven't managed to replace her. In her younger fitter days, Sue would enjoy the overnight trips particularly to Scotland and I would enjoy listening to her dry humour on the long journey up north. The list of group stalwarts that we have lost in recent years is getting depressingly long, but happily, we have a steady trickle of new members who we hope will themselves become stalwarts in time.
