It is with great sadness that the Association has learned of the death of our previous National Secretary, Mrs Angela Cooke.
Angela was National Secretary from 1986 until her retirement in 2002, and then became Chairman of our National Executive Committee for some time.

Angela will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by many people within the Association.
