Geoff Tremlett

It is with regret that the sudden death of Geoff Tremlett of Llanelli Bridge Club is reported.  He passed peacefully away on the evening of Thursday 22nd, in his armchair at home.  The Committee sends its deepest sympathy to Ann, and to longtime friend and Bridge partner Glan James and all of Geoff's friends.
