It is with great sadness that I have to report the passing of Margaret Slatter, who died peacefully in her sleep following a short illness on 11th March, aged 88. Margaret was the wife of our late chairman, Mike Slatter and mother to Jacqui Brooks, our membership secretary and Chris Dowse former club secretary. Margaret was a former Nomads committee member, lifelong supporter of the Nomads and long suffering passenger for Mike’s sidecar trials. In the early days she kept us all in coffee and biscuits when working late on the bikes in the club workshop (aka Mike’s garage at the end of their garden). She also tried to sink us all on the club outings to Aldershot Lido with a limitless supply of her famous bread pudding.
Our thoughts are with Chris, Jacqui and Matthew at this difficult time.
