Marguerite Tonkin: In Memoriam

The death of Marguerite Tonkin on 6th August 2012 is a great loss to her family, friends and also to the Conservation Society, of which she was a staunch friend and supporter.

Typical of her generosity of spirit was the fact that less than three weeks previously she invited thirty members of the Conservation Society into her house and garden during the Village Walkabout along Henbury Road.

 

 

Her lasting legacy is her trio of books published by Redcliffe Press featuring the history of the Henbury area:
