Death of County Member

It is with much sadness that I announce the death on Sunday of Nancy McCall, Strathaven . Nancy was a member of the county since 1993 and regularly competed in competitions and attended all social events while her health allowed.
Nancy was a very friendly lady and was well liked by those who knew her.
Our thoughts are with her son Hamish, daughter Lisbeth, daughter in law Agnes, son in law Joe and her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

The funeral will be held on Tuesday 19th November at 1.00pm in Avondale Old Parish Church, Kirk Street Strathaven, and thereafter to Strathaven Cemetery.
