It is with personal sadness to let people know that Amanda Tanner passed away on Friday morning having lost her battle with cancer.
Amanda was a lovely, vibrant and talented woman. Personally I got to know her some years ago when she volunteered to help out with some village events, and in no time she became an integral part of the organising team. This would be of no surprise to anyone that knew her, as she was a natural organiser with a flair to get things done, whilst enthusing the team around her. She was also great company, fun, an excellent cook and certainly enjoyed a good time.
Her online diaries of sailing adventures with husband Mark (and Basil the dog), were always a good read and a demonstration of the lively fun loving person she was.
Amanda contributed to the village and community in numerous ways, not least by being a Milford on Sea School governor.
Many people in the village will be really saddened by this news, but hopefully her friends can hold on to some warm memories of Amanda in happier times.
Our thoughts are with Mark and we wish him all the strength he needs.
