Her funeral will be on Sunday 2nd April 2023 in Wye at Noon – full details and how you can leave messages & photos in remembrance and remote streaming is at http://www.rosierechter.muchloved.com
We were due to have our DWI AGM that day.
We have decided to postpone that for now (but the #PickDealClean Litter pick of the ancient highway due that day will continue at 10am) and have a later opportunity to properly remember her enormous contribution to us, the local community and the planet.
Lots of love to Norman and all her family and to her many, many friends on this sad loss
