The sad news has come that we have all been dreading. Our dear President and friend Meriel Hathaway passed away in the early hours of Tuesday 31st March 2015. Our thoughts must be with her husband Fred, her close friend, Andrew Brace and all whose lives she touched. A lady of great strength, dignity and grace. Rest well Meriel, it was a privilege to have known you.

Taken in happier days - the Xmas Party at Newark 2011.
Meriel was always very supportive of the NPPA & took a very active role as President. Her absence was felt very strongly at our AGM, an event which Meriel attended each year. We were very lucky to be able to have her within the NPPA.
A great lady in every way, who was very stoic in her approach to ill health. She will leave a huge gap and will be very sadly missed by everyone who knew her.
