It is with great sorrow that I write to tell all who look at this page that the LRA has just lost one of its most energetic and imaginative members. Cheryl was so active in our ranks that she will be impossible to replace. Her ideas got the Open Gardens going, the Litter picked, the Nat West planters prepared and watered, the Newsletter written, the Race Night tickets sold and the LRA January party fed and watered. She did all this with steely determination, a colourful flair and a bright smile. Her aim was always to include as many people as possible so as to build up the strength of the Local Community here in Leatherhead. She succeeded, raised the profile of the town and sent a clear message to the Council that this is our town, we are the stakeholders and we will work to preserve it, despite the efforts of those outsiders who seek to frustrate us.
She will be sadly missed but her spirit and beauty live on whenever we hear laughter, whenever we have a sunny day and whenever we enjoy beautiful flowers.
Caroline Brown (Chairman)
