Pam's funeral took place on Thursday 10th July at Corpus Christi R.C.Church Henfield.   She  was a founder member of Henfield Duplicate Bridge Society back in the mid 1970s.  She was  a much valued member and regular player at club sessions and could always be relied upon for a happy, smiling face-whatever contract her partner had landed her in!  In addition,she was secretary of the Henfield Candles Congress during its "golden years" and worked tirelessly towards the Society's success.  She is sorely missed and our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this very difficult time.  The club will send a donation to the charity 'Know Dementia' in memory of Pam.
