Some very sad news from Rex Cooper…..
“Very sad to tell you Meg, Captain Jim (Gentleman Jim) Foster’s widow, died on Tuesday 18th Mar at the Charlotte Straker Home. Meg had been very poorly most of the last year and was in palliative care. The news reached me from Rosemary Newton – the only other information we have is that her executor is out of the country so the only contact we have is Meg’s solicitor. The firm is Williamsons in Hexham, and I understand that Graham Craig is acting. Telephone 01434 602643. The funeral is being arranged by James Dickinson of Gunnerton and will be held at Corbridge Methodist Church at 13:00 on Tuesday 1st April 2014. Meg’s wishes were to be laid to rest with Jim. Jim and Meg were part of our founding committee who met here in Tarset in June 1998. Very few of us left now !”
I have no more information at the moment but I will post sitreps when appropriate.
