OBITUARY - An Edwyn Ralph woman who worked tirelessly for its Neighbourhood Watch scheme has died. Doris Culshaw, aged 85, was at the forefront of establishing the organisation in Edwyn Ralph, Collington and Thornbury in the late 1990s and was its senior co-ordinator. She was also a horse and dog lover and often reminisced about her time working for the Royal Horticultural Society and the Melton Mowbray Remount Depot during the Second World War. Bill Taylor, who is the joint senior co-ordinator of the Neighbourhood Watch scheme in Edwyn Ralph, said: “She was a lady who always had a welcome waiting when calling at Pond Farm, including the dogs. She worked tirelessly for Neighbourhood Watch to establish it and since then it has been very successful and in no small way due to her work. Doris would be the first to visit new people in the village and to offer our help. We will miss her terribly, but we have a duty to preserve the work in her memory. It has been a privilege to have known such a lovely lady.”
