It is with great sadness that we have to pass on the news that Linda Bell, former Chair of Bristol Wireless, passed away in her sleep on 25th January 2018 at the nursing home where she had been since Christmas 2017.
Linda had a long association with Bristol’s community and voluntary section, being perhaps best remembered for her long service as the director of the St Werburghs Community Centre, where Bristol Wireless were once tenants for 3 very happy years; 3 years which made even more enjoyable by Linda’s presence.
Besides Bristol Wireless and St Werburghs Community Association, Linda was also on the board of Khaas, an organisation which supports BME families with children with disabilities.
Linda’s funeral took place at the Memorial Woodlands near Thornbury on Thursday 15th February 2018, followed by a reception at St Werburghs, both of which were well attended by Bristol Wireless members. In line with Linda’s wishes there was no religious content to her funeral and any fuss – as she would have seen it – was kept to a minimum.
She will be greatly missed by all of us at Bristol Wireless and the wider community and voluntary sector in the Bristol area.
