Many Sussex players will know Jackie from her tireless and cheerful preparation of endless refreshments at Sussex County competitions at the Burgess Hill Constitutional Club.
I have just received the following sad email from Pam, the Chairman:
It is with a very heavy heart and great sadness we have to announce the sudden passing of Jackie Smith on Sunday 7th March 2021.
Jackie has been a committee member for many years and has worked tirelessly for the committee and the club. She organised most of the entertainment, helped with the raffles, Chairman's night, New Members evenings, cooking for various events, getting her beloved husband Ken to drive her to get the shellfish for Cockney nights, and so much more. We are going to miss her tremendously, and she is going to leave a big gaping hole on the committee.
Our sympathies and thoughts go out to Ken and the family."
Trevor and I send our deepest condolences to her family, her friends and her colleagues on the committee and staff of BHCC.
