Dame Margaret Fry DBE

The CRFU is saddened by the news that Dame Margaret Fry, widow of the late John Fry former CRFU and Launceston RFC, passed away earlier this week.

John was CRFU President when Cornwall triumphed at Twickenham in 1999 against Gloucestershire to lift the County title for the third time.

She was educated at Tavistock Grammar School and while at school played hockey for Devon.

Dame Margaret has had a long-term connection with the South West and has been involved in the work of various campaign and charity groups in the South West Peninsula and was an Honorary Doctor of Health.

She is also a former member of the South West Regional Health Authority, former chairman of the Southwest College of Nursing, and chairman of Torridge and South West Devon College of Health.

Our thoughts are with friends and family.
