Shirley Watters

Shirley Watters, long-serving Hon. Secretary and devoted friend of The Friends, died on Monday evening the 19th September at home, peacefully, surrounded by her family.

She and her husband, Reggie, revitalised the Friends when its future looked bleak, and Shirley herself continued to look after the interests of the Friends for many years after Reggie died, only finally stepping down from the Committee a couple of years ago.

She was loved by all, and The Friends of Coleridge has been very fortunate in being able to count on her unwavering support.

A Service of Thanksgiving will be held in Nether Stowey Church at 2.30 pm on Friday 28th October.

A piece about Shirley will appear in the Bulletin in due course.
