"It is with great sadness that we must inform Friends of the death of our beloved Chair and friend Pamela Jackson. Pam passed away on the 2 November 2017 after a short battle with cancer, and her life was celebrated by friends and family in a service centered around her two great loves - poetry and music. There are many plans afoot to remember Pam and all the wonderful work she did for St Cecilia's Hall and Musical Museum, which we shall publicise when they reach fruition."
