Members will remember Charles, who attended many BMPA meetings with his partner (later, his wife, Raj Bansal, who died in 2018). Sadly, Charles passed away on 10th August 2020. Attendance at his funeral on 1st September 2020 will be limited, due to the covid-19 pandemic. Our sympathies are with his family and his many friends at this very difficult time.
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Frankie Walters. She died, following a fall, on Sunday 8th September 2019. She was one of the longest-standing members of the BMPA and was our first Treasurer (1968-1974). She was president 2001-2003 and organised her Annual Meeting in Newcastle upon Tyne, a meeting that everyone who attended will remember for ever. Frankie continued her service to the BMPA as auditor of accounts from 2003 until her death. She will be sorely missed. A Service of Memorial will be held at St Andrews church, Corbridge, Northumberland at 14.00 hours on Monday 16th September 2019.
Carol was the widow of Chris Linton, founder member of the BMPA. Carol was a regular attender at more meetings than most of us can remember and continued to attend as a close friend of many of us. She died on 16th February 2019, aged 80. Her funeral was held at St Mary’s Church, Hayling Island, Hampshire on 8th March, attended by a large number of her friends and family, including many from the BMPA.
Dr Andrew Clymo
We are sad to report the death of Andrew Clymo on 13th September 2018 at the age of 82. He served the BMPA as Secretary, 1995-2003 and as President, 2009-11. A Memorial Service was held on Saturday 3rd November at St Peter’s Church, Kinver and was attended by a large number of friends and family. Eight friends from the BMPA were present. Afterwards, Sara Clymo invited everyone to their delightful home for refreshments and to view photographs and artefacts illustrating Andrew’s eclectic interests and achievements.
