With great sadness I am reporting on the passing of our former member Margaret Smith on Wednesday 19 April.

Margaret was a staunch supporter of TGWBC.

She was Vice President for 7 years, served as a Delegate, Welfare Officer and was on the Match Committee, she will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
