Our deepest sympathy is extended to the family of Merle Robinson, Patron & Life Member of our club, on her passing on 28th June aged a great age of 103 years. Merle was a member of our Club for 53 years. She was Secretary for 15 years from 1967 to 1982 and also a Delegate to the District Meetings for many years.
Merle worked very hard for the club with assisting with the afternoon teas for the Men’s Club, making her lovely sponges and scones and she also assisted with many other functions in the club.
Merle and her late husband Leo had one son John, 4 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.
