It was with great sadness that the WDU3A Ramblers group heard of the death of Jean Nicholson. Jean had walked with the group for many years – on the weekly walks, the days out and the rambling holidays – and will be sadly missed. Our condolences go to her family and friends.
We are sorry to report that Roy Harris died on April 1st. Roy was our first elected chairman, after being part of the small group of four brought together by the founder, Evelyn Harley. Roy and Evelyn created the Constitution together on a wet afternoon, having made separate drafts which were almost identical!
A Cambridge graduate, Roy rose to be a technical director for BT. He wrote poetry and created tapestries (without a pattern!), some of which were exhibited in Leamington. He was a brilliant and hard-working man, very helpful and easy to get on with. He will be missed by many. We extend our condolences to his widow, Betty, their family and friends.
David Forster, who was a Vice Chairman and then Chairman from 2001 to 2004, has also died. He left our U3A to pursue the long course of study that led to his ordination as an Anglican priest.
Our condolences go to his family and friends.
We have also lost Brian Pepworth, who died on April 28th. We send our condolences to his widow, Ruth, their family and friends.
