THE MARCHIONESS OF NORMANBYThe members of the Postgate Society were deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of the Dowager Marchioness of Normanby, on the 15th January 2018, at the age of 97 years.A member of the congregation of St. Hedda’s parish, Egton Bridge, it was always a pleasure to meet such a gracious lady and enjoy her company. An enthusiastic member of the Postgate Society, we were very privileged to have her as our Honorary Patron who always took a lively interest in all we did.The Society has many happy memories of her time with us and we are very grateful for her generosity towards our work. The beautiful Postgate window in St. Hedda’s church, and the memorial stones at Kirkdale Cottage, Egton Bridge, the reputed site of his birth, and at The Hermitage, near Ugthorpe, his later home, are a lasting memorial to her love of Blessed Nicholas Postgate.With a large family she was much loved by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and will be greatly missed within her family. Despite our sadness there is a great thankfulness for a wonderful long life lived with kindnesstoallthecommunity.May sherestinpeace.POSTGATE PRAYER GROUPThis photograph is of a group of parishioners of Our Lady and St Peter’s parish in Bridlington, together with their priest Fr Simon Leworthy.
