                                                 Lynda Price R I P

It is with the deepest sadness that I have to inform the group of the sudden death of Lynda Price yesterday morning, Wednesday 3 April 2013. Many members of the group will remember Lynda from her time as Secretary, a post she stood down from following a serious fall. Her sudden death yesterday in Manchester Royal Infirmary seems to have been from complications consequent on another accident.

I am sure everyone who remembers Lynda will feel a personal sense of loss, and our deepest sympathy and commiserations have been expressed to her partner, our Membership Secretary Peter Swinnerton.
