Lives Remembered

Audrey Smith

We were sad to hear of the passing of Audrey Smith in April. Audrey had delivered the Resident for many years to Priory Place and a few houses in Perry Street, only giving up at the end of 2014 due to illness. But that was only one of the things that Audrey did. She was enthusiastic for life and all that it had to offer. At her funeral there were tributes from her family as well as from her church, St John the Divine and from Buttsbury W.I. Audrey raised funds for St Luke’s Hospice and volunteered at Little Havens Hospice as well as making cakes and jam to sell.

The following people form the structure of BDRA for the next year. Everyone was thanked for their sterling work for the Association and new members were welcomed.  We were pleased to have nearly 100 attending the AGM which celebrated the 89th year of the Association and before the formal business of the meeting we enjoyed a very informative presentation from Jonathan Baggs of Crossrail
