  4. The past and present members of Purbeck and District Riding Club all have the fondest memories of Averil. Most of us remember her with love, for the help given without being asked and support in many different aspects. Her fighting spirit concerning everything Equestrian especially with Purbeck and South Dorset, will long be remembered by all.
    I believe Purbeck RC would not be the successful Club it is today without her efforts as Chairman over many years, a guiding inspiration from a true Lady worthy of our respect and love.
    To my own family over 25 years she has always been on hand for any help or advice . Most of all an exceeding good friend who will be sorely missed but never forgotten.

    Bob Mael, Chairman of Purbeck & District Riding Club

    Andrew, Lesley, Howard, Laura and Gemma.

  7. Averil was such a good friend to me when I moved to the area. I have such fond memories of fun riding together in Wareham Forest and The Piddle Valley. She had an indomitable spirit – her memory will live on in so many spheres.

    My deepest sympathy goes to her family.
