On March 6th, a group of us assembled in The Vault in Queen Square, Penzance to bid “Bon Voyage” to Anne Ratcliffe, who – with husband Pete and doggy demon Bradley – is shortly off to a new home in Kent.
Mount’s Bay W.I. is very sorry to lose Anne, who has over the years been a Vice President, raffle and tea monitor, Standby Secretary and – most importantly – good friend. The Committee in particular will miss the cups of tea and occasional muffins which she supplied for our meetings, which she has been kind enough to host in her front room!
Anne leaves us with our gift of a book of photographs and two hanging ornaments with appropriate slogans to remind her of Cornwall, as well as our love and very best wishes for her new life in the “Far East”. Fortunately, she has promised to keep in touch, and even to come back and visit in the not too distant future!
