Funeral details for Hatfield charity figurehead

THE funeral of a Hatfield charity stalwart is this Friday.

Rose Salmon moved into the Breaks Manor in 1950 and very quickly established the Breaks Youth Centre, on Link Drive, with her late husband Bill (known as Skip) and continued to develop it over the following 30 plus years.

During this time Rose not only produced more than 25 annual pantomimes, performed by club members, but also aided the development of Hatfield’s youth through a dazzling array of activities. “Her dedication and enthusiasm for young people will be remembered by all who experienced her support and guidance,” said a close friend.

Her funeral will be held on August 6, at 11.30am, at the Mintlyn Crematorium, Lynn Road, Bawsey, Kings Lynn.
