Barbara Browne

Barbara passed away on the 3rd March aged 89 years. Many will remember her late husband, Colin Browne, with much affection. He ran the St. Lukes club for many years until 1990. I'm so glad that I took Barbara to last year's presentation which she thoroughly enjoyed.

There is a reception afterwards but the family need to know numbers. So if you wish to attend please make contact with me and I'll let them know.
