SAD NEWS – EUNICE GIBBS

Sadly we have to announce that Eunice has passed away. Eunice and Maurice were probably the first couple to lead as a team. They did extensive recces back in the days when only less sophisticated maps were available, and of course no GPS or other modern day technology. Together they compiled a pocket-size photo field guide to our local orchids. Eunice and Maurice were on their golden wedding anniversary trip in Tenerife some years ago (accompanied by Gerald and Maureen Groves who were also joint leaders) When Maurice died of pneumonia. Eunice took on for many years the unenviable task of typing the programme. This was, of course, using a typewriter!  Understandably requests for amendments/alterations were “not welcomed” by Eunice.  A couple who contributed enormously to our group.  Our condolences to their family.
