Eileen Walters


Talented writer and artist Eileen Walters was one of our longest standing members and will be very much missed. A byword for kindness and generosity, Eileen was also a gracious hostess in whose lovely home and garden we have enjoyed many a cheerful gathering.

RWG is just one of several local organisations of which Eileen was a keen member and it would have come as no surprise to anyone who knew her that Allhallowgate Methodist Church was packed out this afternoon. The Service of Thanksgiving for a long life well lived featured readings and hymns that Eileen had chosen herself during her final illness and touching tributes from her family. To them we offer our deepest condolences and assurance that she will not be forgotten.

Our friendly group meets once a fortnight at the St Wilfred's Community Centre on Trinity Lane and is always open to new members from the Ripon area and beyond. Whether your interest is in poetry or prose, novels, short stories, plays, wacky humour, a more analytical style of writing, or just listening for the time being, you're very welcome.
