As you will have seen in our May Newsletter our long-standing Regional Secretary Lesley Harris had been diagnosed with terminal cancer earlier this year. I’m sorry to have report that Lesley passed away on September 8th with her family by her side. In these restricted times the funeral is a private service to be held on September 23rd at 3pm, but it will be livestreamed for those unable to attend. The details on how to join will be posted on Facebook closer the time. The family have opened a donations fund in Lesley’s memory should you wish to contribute. 


We all extend our heartfelt condolences to Paul, to Ben and the rest of the family at this difficult time.

We shall be including a celebration of Lesley’s life in our next newsletter, if you have any memories of Lesley you would like to share please send them to Chris Whitlock at sm.chair@marshals.co.uk
