In Memory of Karin Walland

Saturday 12th August 2017

Earlier this year one of our long standing members and great supporter of CGS Karin Walland passed away. Many of you may know her, her husband David has asked me to let people know about a service to celebrate her life.

Hi Everybody,
I am holding this on Saturday 12th August 2017 in St Mary the Virgin Parish Church, Norton, Stockton

I am intending to have a communion service starting at around 10:00 then have the church open from 12:00 for anyone who'd rather not attend this service but still wishes to celebrate her life and work.

Clearly not everyone can come and I would ask that if you have a photo and/or happy memory of Karin and/or her work that you would please e-mail them to me, the photos in a high enough quality that I can print out a reasonable size to pin up on the board. There will be pin boards for photos and for the written memories. Danes, simply write in Danish, I'll translate; Agnieszka, please write in English!

There will be light refreshments and I hope to have the church open until at least 16:00. A range of Karin's artwork will be on exhibited in the church.

I don't have a lot of contact details for people who knew Karin. Please pass this information on to anyone you know who might wish it. Karin was a wonderful person and a great artist and I'd wish as many people as possible to celebrate her with me.

David Walland

my e-mail address as the best contact point. There is a "Just Giving" site set up by our friend and my work colleague, Karen Marie Smith for those who'd like to contribute in Karin's memory to the Malala fund - very close to Karin's heart!
