Longer-standing members of the congregation will remember Winnie, who was a member here for many years, but had lived in a home in Bath for the last seven years. Winnie died on Sunday 5 February and her funeral will be held at 2.30 pm on Wednesday 29 February at Haycombe Cemetery, Whiteway Road, Bath BA2 2RQ. No flowers, please, but if anyone would like to make a donation in memory of Winnie, cheques should be made payable to Clarkson’s Donations Account, and sent to Clarkson’s Funeral Directors, 7 Windsor Place, Upper Bristol Road, Bath BA1 3DF. Proceeds of the donations will be split between Stratton House, the Methodist Home where she spent her last years, and AlAnon, a cause very close to her heart.
