Forget Me Not Club remember Emma Hotchin

JEAN Thompson, the secretary of the Donington on Bain Forget Me Not Club, led members in a minute’s silence in memory of the late Emma Hotchin, who died recently, when they met in the village hall for their monthly meeting.

Christine Banister has accepted the invitation to be the president of the club, filling the vacancy left by the death of long-serving president Rita Grantham.

Emma always called the lucky numbers for bingo until she was ill, when Maurice Hackett deputised, and he was caller for the fun games of prize bingo followed by the usual raffle which was run to help give a boost to funds.

Jean Thompson, Christine Bannister, Maurice Hackett and Margaret Bench then served cups of tea and cakes to the 17 members present.
