Gill Sheppard died 2 January 2017

2 January 2017: Sad news. Gill, our previous membership secretary, passed peacefully away this morning at the Nursing home where she has been for the last couple of years. Apparently she was well until Christmas but has been slowly fading since then. The family are thinking about a Memorial tree in Dyrham Park or Kissing gate on Kelston Hill, which she could see from her Staple Hill home. Bob Walker told her son that Dyrham do allow the planting of memorial trees within the Park with details in a memorial Book and The Cotswold Wardens will be happy to dedicate a kissing gate to her memory. A sad loss for all of us. Regards John Walker

The concept of the memorial kissing gate, has really taken off among the family so we would very much like to explore that further if we can, apparently she had expressed a wish to have her ashes scattered on Kelston Hill, so we are hoping to tie the two things together, the Dryham Park memorial remains a good alternative.
