Chairman of the Society Nov 2002 to Jan 2013
Many of you will have known Sue, our Chairman for over a decade. Having dealt with some tough times over the last couple of years, we are sorry to have to report that Sue passed away quietly and peacefully at home on 7th January.
Sue and Charles Lavers’ involvement in the Society began in 1998 after a public meeting when it was announced that the Society was struggling to survive. By 1999 a new team had taken control and Edenbridge Bonfire Society was back in business. Sue took over the Chairmanship in 2002 - overtly supporting Charles (our renowned Field Marshal) but actually filling a much, much bigger role. Charles did lots of work - but it was Sue who quietly and surely lead the whole team and under her leadership the Society prospered:
- Millions of people across the world know about Edenbridge Bonfire
- Over ten thousand line our streets each year.
- Bonfire is a welcomed boost to many local businesses
- Hundreds have fun taking part in a unique and hugely enjoyable event which brings together young and old
Sue leaves a very big gap in our hearts. Our thoughts are with Charles and his family
We may be sad but we are nevertheless already gearing up for Bonfire 2013
Remember the date: Saturday 2nd November 2013
