A Sad Loss...

Monday 21st February

It is with great sadness that we announce the sad loss of Kay Gibbs who passed away last Friday after a short illness.  Many will have known Kay from her involvement with the Pincents Organ Club where she was the leading light for so many years. The Club would not have survived without her and Alan and sadly, due to their declining health they finally closed its doors last December.
