Nora Will be sadly missed.
Sadly on the 21st of May 2018 at the great age of 88yrs Nora Trevett sadly passed away peacefully.
Nora had been one of the key members of the Willow Tree Group for over 30yrs she had been a real treasure to the group with constant recall of her memories which opened the way to stories that enthralled us.Her memory was sharp and she could remember things in detail.
She really enjoyed knitting and made many thing for the group to sell to raise money.She loved to draw, paint and take photos.
She truly was one of a kind and will be missed by all the members of the group.Rest in peace Nora but keep drawing.
