This week we heard the news that 2 more kite flyers have left the flying field. Caroline Swift died earlier this week after a long fight with Leukemia. Caroline was wife of Jerry, who is secretary of the British Kite Flyers Association. Always a warm and friendly person, Caroline will be sorely missed by those who knew her. Our thoughts are with Jerry.

A bit closer to home, we learnt of the passing of Daphne Melissa May. Daphne joined our club last year, along with her partner Frank Wright, at Kites on the Beach. Daphne and Frank were both members of the Essex Kite Group and had regularly attended both Kites on the Beach and Kites over Capstone. Our thoughts are with Frank.
