Margaret Wilkie 4th May 1942 – 30th April 2020

It is with a great deal of sadness that we advise you that Margaret passed away in the early hours of Thursday morning in hospital after contracting the Covid-19 virus.

Margaret was the widow of Jim Wilkie (Calne Bowls Club President 2011-13) and had been a great supporter of the club, helping to start and support the Jim Wilkie Memorial Day Trophy, which is played for by teams from neighbouring clubs on an annual basis. Unfortunately, she was not well enough to present the trophy in 2019, so her daughter Fiona deputised in her absence.

Margaret was always willing to volunteer to help with anything, and was also an active member of the WI, organising whist and skittles events.

Margaret joined the Calne Short Mat Bowls Club last year and soon became a very popular member, as well as a good bowler.

She will be missed by many and our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time, especially with the current restrictions.
