Orchestra saddened to hear about Bridget Downer

Those who knew Bridget Downer will be saddened to learn that she died in the first week of April 2013 at the Radbrook Nursing Home in Shrewsbury.

The funeral will be on Thursday 18th April at 1pm in St Eata's church, Atcham.

Bridget was at various times the Orchestra's Chairman and Secretary, and over many decades she did a huge amount of work to ensure the smooth running of the Orchestra. She also led the viola section until she retired from playing in 2000 owing to ill health.

Our thoughts are with her friends and family.
