Anne Izzard

Just a short note to inform Friends that one of Skokholm's most avid supporters, Anne Izzard, passed away on Monday this week.
Anne, and her husband Arthur, were the most regular visitors to Skokholm up to the early 2000's and offered huge support to the island. Sadly Arthur died suddenly not long after they had become the only people to ever hire a helicopter to get them out to the island for a special anniversary.  Anne was the Chair of the Friends for many years and it was only when illness made it more difficult for her to both visit the island and then travel to meetings did she step down.
An obituary will be published in the next Friends Newsletter.
