Tuesday was a sad day in Pickwicks. It was the day of Ann Wain's funeral.
The cafe opened at 0800hrs and usual, but closed between 1000hrs and 1400hrs. This was to allow everyone to attend.
The funeral was held in Wookey Hole in their splendid church. There was only standing room. It was nice to meet her nieces.
The service was very Ann. Connie, one of Ann's closest and dearest friends gave a moving view of her friendship with Ann. It finished with a lovely poem.
After the service, we were all invited to the Wookey Hole Tea Rooms, which is owned and run by another of Ann's friends Theresa. It was a nice way to end a moving experience.
I was very impressed by the lads who attended from Pickwicks. As they are late teens, many have not been to a funeral before. Sadly, it'll be an experience they'll get used to!!
Later that evening, I attended the Skate park meeting in the Mayor's Parlour and then a meeting for the RUH 1940's night.
That night promises to be fantastic. Tickets are going well, but need to sell more..... so if you can come along on 11th May, be glad to see you.
