committee for many years. She

showed a tireless dedication to

the role, providing support to

various chairs and the whole

committee and the wider bridge

community.

Kathy's contribution was

largely behind the scenes collating

the calendar, booking

venues, organising teas, running

the AGM, duplimating,

maintaining membership lists,

washing tablecloths - the list is

endless. She also represented

Wilts at many levels including

the Tollemache and the Pachabo.

Kathy handled things quietly

and without fuss. It was a

testament to her dedication that

when she retired in 2018 she

attended the next two committee

meetings to help her successor.
