Ivy met Ron at the age of 17 when the conductor of The Westborough Ladies Choir invited her to sing with the Godalming Band who he also conducted. Some years later their daughter wanted to play a cornet like her father, Ivy went along to help teach the youngsters to read music, and the rest is history.
Ivy played trombone with Godalming for 35 years before retiring from playing in 2013. She was invited to join scaba as a committee member when she started attending meetings as the Godalming Band representative and has served the Association for over 20 years, most recently as our Membership Secretary. In 2018 Ivy was appointed Vice President in thanks and recognition for her many years of dedicated service.
