Death of Mrs Edith Forrest

posted by Ann Scholefield on Sun 23 Nov 2014 16:08

Just a note to all club members to inform you of the death of Mrs. Edith Forrest. She has had links with the club for more than 50 years. Her late husband was the founder of the Bolton Sunday Schools' Badminton League and a member of our club way back when the matches were played at Bolton Grammar School. When Mrs. Forrest's husband, George, passed away, as a tribute to him we changed the club's name to Forrest, approximately 30 years ago.

Until about three years ago she was present at every Bolton Badminton League Presentation Evening going back 30+ years. (The photo below is of club members with Edith at the 2007/08 presentation evening)

The funeral will be on Monday 24th November at West Chapel, Overdale – 10.30 a.m.
