At the recent Talking Newspaper AGM on Friday 8 May 2015 at the Markwell Pavilion, Bishop’s Stortford, Chairman Dave Smith presented flowers and a gift token to Mrs Christine Heyhoe who retired that evening as a volunteer after 35.25 years of service. The gifts were personal tokens of appreciation from individual members of the Management Committee.
Christine had been a founder member of the organisation and was one of the three distributors for the first ever edition of the Talking Newspaper issued on 14 February 1980. Since then she has continued to be involved as a lead distributor, as well as serving as a reader, an editor and a member of the Management Committee. Christine has also organised our annual fund-raising coffee morning at the Methodist Church Hall with Christine Leach for many years.
We shall miss Christine’s smile and humour, and of course her sterling contribution to the Talking Newspaper. We thank her and wish her well.
