Mel Browne

15 May 2010 10:00 PM | Secretary MCA (Administrator)

Many of you will remember our friend Mel Browne, Chair of the Minet Conservation Association for over 20 years and a founder member of the Myatt's Fields Park Project Group.  Mel ran the annual Fair in the park for many years and, as Chair of the MCA, helped to save Longfield Hall from being closed down, and sewed the seeds for many local projects, such as the park project, the Save the Minet Library Campaign, the Neighbourhood Watch Scheme, and many others.

Mel Browne retirement presentation - March 2004

Sadly, Mel died in mid March.  Mel's daughters Nick and Tammy have asked that friends and neighbours join with them to remember Mel's life with a celebratory picnic in the park at 1pm on Sunday 23rd May.  We have already planted an oak tree (photographed below) on the bandstand side of the picnic area and hope to be able to dedicate a bench in her name near the tree. 

Please do join us on 23rd May.  Bring a picnic and a blanket.
