Great Sadness

It was with great sadness that we heard of the deaths of two ladies who have been such valued members of our society.

BARBARA BATTISON you probably never saw, but when the curtain rose on a scene that brought an appreciative “Aahh!” from the audience, it was probably because of the extra little touches that Barbara’s talent had brought to it. Stage dressings were her forte.

MARJORIE SARSFIELD came to Loughborough from Durham with her husband, Norman, and immediately made her mark on the local amateur theatre scene. She appeared in plays and musicals with several societies, including ours, as well as playing an active role behind the scenes. She served on our committee and for some time acted as Chairman. Her talent and commitment will be greatly missed.
