Gail Walkerdine


Gail Walkerdine

It is with great sorrow that we have to inform you of the passing of Gail Walkerdine. She became ill and passed away on Monday morning.

Update [1st December 2009]: We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to everyone who joined us to say farewell to Gail on Friday 27th November. Many of you offered your time, and in some cases even your bikes, to help us give Gail the send off she deserved; and the sheer number that turned up to ride with us made it a truly humbling experience for all.

Once again thank you all for your help and support. There are far too many of you to name, but in particular, we would like to thank Paul, Sam and the rest of the marshals. Everybody commented on what a fantastic job they did keeping the run as smooth as silk.

You were gone before we knew it and only God will know why.

Chris, I am so sorry for your loss, I knew Gail some 20 odd years ago when I worked with her and used to see her at the Duck in the Pond Pub and of course later ay various rallies. Such a lovely, vibrant, fun girl, its tragic she should be torn from you and us at such a young age. My thoughts are with you.
