Arthur Redway

Arthur joined us soon after we had separated from the Wilson Centre group and formed TVWC. His quick wit and humour livened many of our meetings and much of his writing. To help us to build bonds within the group, Arthur and his French wife Kathryn, opened their beautiful house and gardens at Henwick Old Farm, Thatcham to all TVWC members for a party every summer. On one occasion, they invited Christine Mundy and her husband to bring their ferrets. Following his untimely death on 20th July 2008 of mesothelioma (asbestos in the lungs) we dedicated an anthology, Pick and Mix, to him.

Chris Mundy

Chris joined the Circle in 2000 and quickly made her presence known taking the key role in the pantomime written, produced and performed by Circle members in 2001. She became a committee member in 2003 and took over the role of Convenor in 2005, which she held for three years. She next became treasurer in 2009, which she relinquished in 2011, However she remained on the committee, which enjoyed her ebullient personality and willingness to organise events. She was still a committee member at the time of her untimely and sudden death, whilst volunteering as ever, at the Berks County show in 2015. Chris was an imaginative short story writer and her poetry was full of emotion receiving both praise and prizes.
It was felt that something more permanent was needed to remember someone who was so influential in the Circle. A competition in his name was established in 2011 and all the entries in the first Arthur Redway Memorial Competition were included in an anthology published that year.
