Club founder is remembered

A SPECIAL tree planting ceremony has been held in memory of the late founder of Thorne Monday Club.

Sheila Pantling, from North Eastern Road, Thorne, started the club 32 years ago.

She died in September 2009 and the tree was planted in Buntings Wood to mark her work for the club.

The ceremony also marked the last meeting of the social club, who met every week at Thorne Methodist Church, Kings Street, Thorne.
