We are saddened by the news that beloved 18+ member Mary has passed away. Mary had been battling an illness for a long time, and died peacefully in her sleep surrounded by familiar faces and those that loved her.
Mary was a wonderful character and will be greatly missed by everyone.
Mary’s funeral will be held at Haycombe crematorium on 19th March at 9:30, followed by a memorial at St John’s church at 11am. Refreshments will then be served at the British Legion. Everyone is welcome to attend.
Radstock Junior Club were invited to make a pitch at the Westfield Dragon’s Den event, where small grants were available for community groups.
Club leader Nicky made a brilliant presentation and was awarded £500 to subsidise the cost of the club’s overnight trip in the summer. Nicky was supported on the evening by parents and volunteers from the club.
One of our volunteers, Kristy Tyack (was Young) was nominated for the long service award at the Chairman of the Council Volunteer Awards. Kristy has been involved with the society for 18 years and is our longest serving volunteer.
We attended an awards ceremony at the Guildhall in Bath where the winners were announced. Sadly Kristy did not win her category, although the award went to a very deserving winner (who’d clocked up 60 years of volunteer service!).
Kristy is still a winner to us, and we’d like to recognise her commitment and thank her for all her hard work and continued support.
