I have been informed that Anita Brothwell sadly passed away on Monday (02/04/12) night after a long illness.

Anita was ‘in charge’ of the Screamline Costume Hire department for many years until her health problems worsened and was a past long serving member of the Divisional Executive Committee representing Newcastle District as well as representing Costume Hire.

In Newcastle, she was a long serving member of the Ladies Committee (the female section of what became the Fellowship before it joined with the male section, the BP Guild, and before it changed its name a second time to SASU), involving herself with fundraising for and supporting a great range of activities in the District. She will be especially remembered for her Ladies Committee work supporting Castle Capers in its early years.
