Farewell to someone very special

We are very sad to hear that Bette Coles passed away on Monday.

She will be missed by so many in our community, having moved with the family to Bradninch in the early 1970s.

Bette was such a lovely person and she always had a smile and enjoyed being part of the cricket.

With all the generations of family involved, she one of our most conscientious supporters and never one to moan when we had a bad day or when the weather let us down.

To the contrary, Bette was one of those special people who brought a ray of sunshine, with a reassuring look or a touch of humour, so refreshing when many were entrenched in the belief that the sky had fallen in, when after all it was just a game of cricket.

Farewell and thank you to a very special Lady.

Love and condolences to all the family.
