SAD NEWS- 15/4/18

It is with great sadness that I’m letting you know from Hilary Robertson that Helen Annan passed away this week after a long fight with breast cancer. Whilst Helen was living and working in Cumbria she was an active member of our club and joined us on many of our rides. Many of you will remember her as a very friendly, sociable and interesting person.

She formerly worked for the Morecambe Bay partnership where she organised such activities as beach cleans. Her love of the outdoors saw her running a hostel in Millom and also a Post Office in the Antarctic organised by the Scott Polar Heritage Trust.

During her illness Hilary kept in regular touch and she is sending a card of condolence on behalf of KDCS.

If you knew Helen and would like your name adding to the card please let Hilary or I know by Tuesday morning at the latest. My e-mail address is or you can text me on 07872472346. The card is of a path through a Blue Bell wood and will be posted on Tuesday to Helens parents in Ayr.

Thank you - Steve Warner
