It is with great sadness that we have to tell you of the death of our dear friend and long-standing member of the Society, Margaret Austin.
Margaret passed away on Friday 12th October 2018 at Stretton Hall nursing home, All Stretton, where she received loving care.
Margaret was a life member of the society having joined in 1975. She held several committee posts over the years including vice chair, Alliance of Literary Societies representative and summer school director. She was such a strong supporter of the society and tireless promotor of Mary Webb.
