GG Life Members
With thanks to these wonderful ladies for their long standing dedication and contributions to the Guildford Greystanes Physie Community.
As the founding teacher Isabel opened doors to the Club at just 16 years of age. She went on to dedicate the rest of her life to the club teaching all classes right into her later years. It is difficult to identify how many women and girls she has helped in the Guildford-Greystanes area but it would be in the thousands. She always had time for all her students both on and off the physie floor.

Appointed as Life member in September 2013.
