Eileen Allison

The passing of a very special lady and consummate organiser, beloved by all. 

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Eileen Allison.  As you can imagine this is a terrible shock to Brian and the family, but they have specifically requested that the news of her passing is shared with the VETTS Community whom she loved. Eileen was a force of nature - one in a million.  As well as playing the game she loved, she devoted many years of her life to the VETTS as a referee, bringing that unique combination of warmth, humour and formidable authority.

In 2008, Eileen received the Mike Watts Award for services to the society, and was made Honorary Vice President in 2009. 

Eileen was loved by all and will be sorely missed. Our love and our thoughts are with Brian and her family, at this sad time.
