Death of Dorothy Curd in June 2020

We have been informed of the sad news that Dorothy Curd has passed away.

In 1981, a letter was sent from a director of Manitou (Mr Gordon Himsworth) to the Verwood Parish Council, requesting a meeting to discuss a possible twinning between Verwood and Champtoceaux. A meeting was arranged at the Monmouth Ash Public House, at which Mr Himsworth (a Director of Manitou) and four Parish Councillors, R (Ron) V W Curd, L (Leo) Roberts, G (Gordon) J Thorne and F W (Bill) Williams, were present.

Dorothy and her husband Ron were founder members of the Verwood Twinning Association and remained members until age forced them to retire to Exeter, where Ron died in 2018 at the grand old age of 105. He was a Councillor for many years. Dorothy & Ron were also founder members of the Verwood Amateur Dramatic Society

The Picture shows Ron and Dorothy at their Home in Lake Road Verwood in 2005.
