Dear All,

It is with a heavy heart that I write to you regarding the unexpected passing of
our dear friend, John Gavin. His sudden departure has left a profound impact
on all of us. John’s remarkable dedication and enthusiasm for the City and the
Bridge Ward Club were truly inspiring, and his absence will be deeply felt.

In honouring John’s close ties with the Ward, his family is arranging a memorial
service at St Magnus the Martyr, a place he held dear. We will share the details
of the service as soon as they are available, allowing his family the necessary
time to grieve.

His absence leaves a significant void, yet I believe John would want us to
continue the vibrant legacy of the Ward Club in his memory. Let us carry
forward the spirit of his commitment and dedication.

With heartfelt condolences,

Tim Levene – Club President

(Pat) Clark. Pat passed away peacefully on New Year’s Day following a long fight against cancer.

Pat joined the Bridge Ward Club in September 1998. She quickly became active in the affairs of the Club, joining the Committee and then becoming Chairman for the two years 2004/05 and 2005/06. During that time Pat led full programmes of events, including two Civic Luncheons and also developed the Club’s support of the Norwegian Business Scholar’s Trust.
