March 2017 with sadness

We are very sad to announce the death of Mary Evans.  Mary was our longest-serving member, having joined the then Lutterworth Ladies speaking club over 30 years ago. She was a fount of wisdom and expertise, and had the knack of making new members feel welcome and appreciated, and gave us all invaluable advice and encouragement in her lovely lilting Welsh voice.

Mary played an active role in the club throughout her time, taking roles such as President, Treasurer, and Publicity Officer. She always maintained a sharp mind, clear judgement, excellent memory and a lively sense of humour, coupled with an optimism that things would always get better.

Mary played an active role for many years in the wider community. She was well known throughout the town through its various associations and institutions. A fuller obituary will follow in the May edition of the Lutterworth and District Journal.

Mary will be much missed and our thoughts go out to her family at this sad time.
