It was with deep sadness that we announced the passing of Waltraud Field end September 2019. Originally from Germany, Waltraud was one of the founding members of the Writers' Circle formed in 1964, and which she originally joined in order to develop her writing skills in English. She wrote poetry, articles and short stories both in English and her mother tongue, and was firstly a passionate and enthusiastic member, Treasurer and finally Chair, supporting and encouraging other writers and members of the circle as she felt she had been supported and encouraged. Along with her family, garden, cooking and writing, the Circle was one of the most important elements in her life and she chaired it until shortly before her death at age 91. The circle members were delighted to pay tribute to Waltraud by naming our international poetry  competition in her memory, and it was fitting that this should be done two years previously, while she was still with us, and could enjoy the appreciation that members felt towards her for her tireless, 55-year service to the circle.
