It saddens me to have to announce in these pages the death of Helen Ridgway, on Tuesday 25 July 2017.
When I receive more information I will add it to these comments. Most of you will know that Helen has been poorly for some time. After a stay in Hospital she entered into a Hospice care program.
It is truly the end of an era. Dave and Helen moved to Whittington in 1999, when they took over the Dragons Head. Helen was born in Kendal and until recent times was manageress of the Spar shop in Kirkby Lonsdale. Helen has lived alone in the Maltings since the untimely demise of Dave.
We all send our sympathies to her two sons, Jason and Andrew (known to all as “Stan”.)
P.S. The service will be held at 12:30 on Tuesday 08 August 2017 at St. John the Baptist Church, Arkholme followed by a reception at the Redwell Inn.
