We heard the sad news that Doreen Darby died the night of Friday 13th May. As a North Wilts District Councillor she was Chairman of the Wilts & Berks Canal Partnership in the 2000s.  This page on our web-site shows her with Juanita Davy and Ken Oliver at the opening of Chaddington Lock in 2005.

Anne O'Donoghue said of that day 

"I remember her so well with her advice and help- Even preparing teas and washing up at Chaddington Lock ‘Topping Out’ for us because we were so busy, and she was the Guest of Honour."

Her funeral is on Thursday 26th May at 11.30 in Colerne church and at the pub afterwards. No flowers, donations to the Canal Trust.

Rest in peace, Doreen.
