Farewell to Chronicle stalwarts
Everyone involved in the Sunday morning lay-ups in Kibworth Village Hall appreciated her calmness and patience as she was bombarded with requests for changes to some of the articles. She was proud of her grandchildren and was often accompanied and assisted at lay-up by Joe and Millie. Though having many family responsibilities she always made time for the Chronicle.
Thank you Brenda for all your hard work over the years. We wish you a very happy ‘retirement’.
On the sudden and untimely death of Richard Darke in October 1999, Stephen, as Vice Chairman, stepped up to the responsibilities of Chairman, a role he has held for 20 years. Now, after seeing the Chronicle reach its 40th year, he is to take a well-earned rest from all his efforts. The whole team thank him wholeheartedly for the countless hours he has devoted to its continued success and wish him well for the future.
As well as all this, she has made sure that the header and footer of each page are aligned correctly - harder than it looks - and that the name of the correct layer-up is assigned to each page.
In addition to her role as Lay-up Officer, Barbara has always willingly laid up a page, made the coffee if necessary and helped to pack up at the end of each session. She has also welcomed newcomers and made them feel at home. Thank you for all your behind-the-scenes work Barbara. Enjoy your well-earned time out.
