DAPHNE MILLS (1954-2023)

Daphne Mills, well known to most members of the Club, sadly died during the night of March 28th. Daphne had suffered an aggressive form of cancer and for the last few weeks of her life had been cared for at the British Legion hospice at Allington. Daphne was a stalwart of the Club for decades and took an interest in all aspects of natural history, from birds to plants, to wasp galls, fungi and marine life. Daphne had a very sharp eye for species in the field and preferred to be there rather than inside. She was a lovely bright and friendly colleague and will be missed. A full obituary will be prepared for the new 'Kent Naturalist'.
