|The story of the Diana Taylor Trophy|
Marjorie Taylor was a keen member of Shrewsbury Lacemakers who had
considerable lacemaking and needlework skills. Diana brought sunshine
and light into the group with her happy smiling face and jolly
personality. Many of us remember her cheerful "Good bye, everybody" at the end of each lacemaking day.|
Diana died tragically in a car accident on the way home from work. Her car came off the road at Wenlock Edge, overturning and hitting a tree. She was 43 years old.
Her family were, of course, devastated at her early death as were her friends in the local church where she worked with the children. In her name the family gave a trophy, a pretty silver plate, to be awarded at the AGM each year to a member for an outstanding piece of work. The topic for the competition is decided at the preceeding AGM. The trophy has been awarded every year since 2002 and the winner is decided by members' votes.
