 Beatrice Ingram

Sadly Beatrice Ingram, one of our Honorary members, died on 24th March. She did not paint but she had done much for the club over the years. She was married to Roy who was the chairman for a number of years in the 60's and she attended meetings and exhibitions for years providing catering. She was responsible for the creation of "The Cloth" which had the names of all the artists who had exhibited embroidered onto it along with the names of the founders of the club. "The Cloth" is displayed at every exhibition- a wonderful piece of our Art club's history. She was a very interesting, lively lady who still took an interest in the club reading the newsletter avidly (she informed me once) and is fondly remembered by our early members.
