West of Scotland Branch News

From Robert McLaughlin

The West of Scotland Branch received some very sad news that Tony Pritchard – one of our long-standing associates and supporter of the Branch as well as the HCA – suddenly passed away while on holiday with his wife Margaret on 25 May 2017.

The funeral service was well attended by our Branch and we will all miss Tony very much because he always helped out with the AGM, the Study Day and the Burns Supper.

Tony had organised our June meeting at the Tenant Caledonian training centre but we cancelled this as a mark of respect and instead hurriedly had a Branch meeting hosted by Sheila Miller, our Branch Secretary, at Stobhill Hospital.

At the meeting we discussed the theme and speakers for our Study Day on 23 February 2018 at the Westerwood Hotel in Cumbernauld, Glasgow (please note the date for your diary). Delegate booking forms will be out soon.
