Club’s tribute to Margaret

Gala Cycling Club president Dean Halliday gathered members together before last week’s ride to inform them of the sad passing of Margaret Johnston.

Having been ill for some time Margaret remained a hard-working member of the club.

A minute’s silence was held in respect of a fellow member and friend who all agreed would be sadly missed by everyone who knew her.

Margaret’s funeral will take place at 1pm today at Melrose Crematorium, where everyone is welcome to attend, and afterwards at the Kingsknowe Hotel for a light refreshment.
