Sue Gard

Posted on 30th April 2019
It is with great sadness that we heard that Sue Gard passed away on Maundy Thursday after a short illness. Sue was a keen orienteer, and had been an active member of Devon Orienteering Club in the 1980s and 1990s. She actively supported Junior orienteering, and supported the South West squad at National Events. After that she moved to Somerset and continued to run with Quantock Orienteers. Sue was very gently spoken, and always enjoyed a chat before or after a run. She was often accompanied by her collie.

Her funeral will be on Thursday 9th May at 12.15, at Whimple Crematorium. Further details on the QO website.

Cris Tween

Posted on: 20th March 2019
Members will be saddened to learn of the death of Cris Tween, who passed away on Friday 15th March 2019 after a long illness.
Cris was for some years the BOF National Fixtures secretary, and was for many years a club & SWOA stalwart, acting as JK Entries secretary, and leading the original WIM SI computing team. Wimborne Orienteers offer their deepest sympathy to the Tween family at this sad time. A full appreciation of Cris is now on the WIM website. Details of funeral arrangements will also be made available in due course.
