The Branch were saddened to hear of the death of our Hon. President and long term member Lilian Meiklejohn on 20th November. Lilian was the teacher of the Branch general class for 23 years and was presented with the Branch Award. She had been ill for some time but was always cheerful and a great support to the Branch.

We were also saddened to hear on 23rd November of the sudden death of Eleanor Stewart, another long term member of our Branch. She taught the beginners class for several years and was a regular attender at our class.

Their experience, help and encouragement was always appreciated and they will both be missed.
