 Gil Roper

I must acknowledge the recent passing of Gil Roper.  He and his wife Helen have been members of our group for many years.  Gil was well respected and liked in the Tawa and Tawa U3A communities.  In recent years he and Helen gave presentations on holidays in Morocco, the Middle East and Ecuador.  I know that Gil was also a member of the U3A choir and led a Botany Group.  He will be missed.  Our deepest sympathies are with Helen and their family in their sad loss.

Carole Naylor, Co-ordinator, Tawa U3A Travel Adventures Group

His funeral was at the Tawa Anglican Church on Tuesday 7th March

Mary Potter Hospice comments that "It's our immense privilege to provide our specialist hospice care free of charge for over 900 local people and their families each year.
