Sad loss of club stalwart
It is with great sadness that the club were informed of the passing of Eddie Marsh who had been a member for over 20 years.
Condolances to Eddies wife Joyce and his family.
Eddie was always the first to volunteer when anything needed doing - he arrived early to set out the chairs and the equipment. Eddie made the tea and coffee for many years while we met at the Crown Centre. He had served on the committee for many years and always helped setting up the exhibitions in the Museum and the displays in the Market Place.
For many years Eddie sent weekly reports to the local newspaper and kept an archive of press cuttings and photographs of the clubs activities
With his camera handy he was always around to take group photos and presentations. Even after several major operations Eddie was soon back helping where he could.
He very much enjoyed photographing the local countryside and wildlife with his slides and prints doing well in club competitions.
Finally after a stroke Eddie was unable to attend club meetings but many members remember him with great affection.
Sadly missed the funeral will be at Devizes Cemetery on 3 December at 2pm.
