Joyce Bamber is fondly remembered in this lovely statement issued from the Club Day Committee.
This is from the Club Day Committee but I feel Joyce was a very big part of Lytham Fund raising and she will be missed by many. God Bless (shared from a Lytham Facebook page).
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of one of our longest serving committee members and Hon. Life Vice President Mrs. Joyce Bamber.
Joyce was a well known character, having lived in the same house in Lytham all her life and attending Queen Mary School. Without doubt Club Day was her favourite day of the year, her son David said “Once Christmas was over the countdown to Club Day would begin, she loved being involved and would help out wherever she could”.
Joyce was part of our fundraising team, over the years she has held coffee mornings, raffles, tombolas etc to raise vital funds for Club Day. In the week before Club Day Joyce would sell raffle tickets at the Club Day stall, nearly everyone who walked passed knew Joyce and would stop for a chat! For the past 25 Club Days Joyce could be found in the Hewitt Lecture rooms organising the refreshments, after which she would watch the parade before dashing to Lowther or Lytham Hall to organise the tombola. Over the years Joyce was involved with several Lytham organisations, she was instrumental in installing the Floral Clock, Rose Garden and Shrimper in Lowther Gardens.
We send our love to David, and the family.
RIP Joyce, we will miss your dry wit and sense of fun.
Thank you for your service to Club Day and the Lytham community
Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this sad time.
