The Friends were saddened to learn recently of the death of Monica Clarke. Monica was a founder member of the Friends of CP Park, and someone to whom the protection of the park was of great importance. She had lived for many years in a house that backed onto Crystal Palace Park, and the garden there gave testimony to her green fingers.
Monica had many other commitments, in addition to her enthusiastic participation in the volunteering sessions with the Friends in the Secret Garden; she was a woman of wide interests and strong character, and we shall miss her.
