  9. Saddened to hear of Issy’s passing and thoughts are with her family and friends.

    A few of us fellas know Issy through the golf club where she would often volunteer to help cook and serve meals for each team during the pennant golf season. She always had a smile on her face and was always on for a chat, no matter who you were. When we turned up and saw Issy, we knew that we were always guaranteed a laugh when she was around!

    Thanks for all of your help Issy, we will miss not having you up at the club. RIP
