  Dawn Herbert RIP - Funeral arrangements now added

We are sorry to have to report the death of Dawn Herbert. 

Dawn, seen here (seated left) at the helm of our team v Dublin in 2013, contributed a lot to bridge at both club and county levels and was one of our Honorary Vice-Presidents.

Jean Keen writes:

I am sorry to have to tell you that Dawn passed away today, Thursday 30th May, after a short stay in a local nursing home following an extended period of deteriorating health, with hospital intervention.

Dawn fought so hard in her latter years to deal with her restricting physical problems and, after husband John passed away, she coped amazingly well with life confined for the most part to home and a severe lack of mobility - and still our little Welsh dynamo!  Now she is at peace, maybe in that huge bridge club in an alternative universe - with Omar Sharif as well as John!
