Jennie McGregor-Smith B.E.M.

We are very sad to announce the death of Jennie McGregor-Smith who died on 15th September, aged 85.

Jennie was not just a Founder Member of the Bromsgrove Society, she was its instigator. It was her letter-writing and campaigning over the preservation of the town's history that brought together a nucleus of people to discuss the formation of a civic and heritage society, and she personally organised the Society's inaugural meeting in May 1980.

She was closely involved in arts, music and community activities in Bromsgrove and beyond for many years, and wrote several popular books on local history. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

The funeral will take place on Thursday, 12th October at 2pm at Redditch Crematorium. Family flowers only, please. Donations in Jennie's memory can be made to Help Musicians. All enquiries to James Giles & Sons (01527 872318).
