Margaret Haines


It is with very deep sadness that I have to report the passing of Margaret Haines, the wife of Phil. As some of you will know, Margaret suffered catastrophic injuries following an accident at home earlier this week, from which she was unable to recover. I can only imagine what Phil is going through at this time and therefore I should be grateful if you would spare a moment for a member/friend who is a Radyr man through and through.

Margaret was a very active woman and always attended club functions. I remember her being on my table at a Golf Club luncheon when she was the life and soul of the party and a whizz when it came to the President’s infamous quiz. She was I am told a good golfer and on occasions accompanied Phil down the club for a drink. She will be missed terribly by Phil and by the many people who knew her. As a mark of respect there will be a minutes silence before all club games in the south east Wales area.

Clearly under normal circumstances the details of Margaret’s funeral would have been distributed in due course. However Covid regulations may cause the numbers to be restricted and whatever transpires I will contact you as soon as the situation is clear.
