Caroline Poole 

It is with great sadness that I inform you of the recent death of Caroline Poole after a recent illness. She will be missed by so many people who knew her.

She started Uphill Junior Club with Jim Halfpenny coaching a small number of children and as the numbers grew Caroline was joined by her husband John and together they made the club grow to be one of the largest in the South West area.

Caroline and John have introduced so many children to the game of badminton with so many of whom have gone on to not only play at senior club level but also to play in the junior and senior county teams.

In 1999 she was awarded Coach of the Year by Badminton England which was richly deserved.

John and her family would like all who knew her to join them in a celebration of her life on Friday 9th November 2018 at St John's Baptist Church, Lower Church Road, Weston -Super- Mare BS23 2AQ at 12.30pm and afterwards at Weston – super - Mare Golf Club.
