Barbara Janes

We are sad to learn that Barbara Janes has died.  She was admitted to Gloucester Hospital last week and passed away peacefully in her sleep, aged 89.  Many Gloucestershire players will remember her as a very able partner and an opponent to be respected.

We have no funeral details at this time but will keep you informed.
