Hyacinth Coombs was an SCCC Honorary Life Member.
Hyacinth was in hospital over Christmas but was then discharged; early this morning however she suffered a major heart attack.
Hyacinth was a bastion of both SCCC and of croquet. An extremely good player, she also numbered among her many talents the energy, social drive, and know-how needed to run our club's bar. She did this for many years.
Here she is pictured awarding the prizes at the August tournament in 2008
