Vale Margaret Dunn

It is with regret that we report the death of Margaret Dunn, wife of shed stalwart and Life Member, Geoff Dunn. Geoff is one of the original shed members and has played a key role in the establishment and operation of the shed since its conception.

 Geoff was our original treasurer and until he relinquished the position he was more than ably assisted by Margaret, or Margy as she was known to shed members, in the preparation of applications for grant moneys and in the set up, compilation and presentation of our early financial records.

Margy passed away on 13th February, 2013 after a long bout with cancer. To Geoff and his family the members of The Entrance Men's Shed offer their sincere sympathy and condolences.
