Rosemary Chrimes MMAC membership number 90168

A very modest lady who was unaware of all the masters records she holds. We are all proud to have Rosemary as a member of Midland Masters. Our thanks go to Bridget Cushen who has dug deep to compile a list of Rosemary’s achievements.

  1. Let us remember that Rosemary is also a profoundly respected academician: a gifted piano recitalist, Commonwealth Games Gold Medal winner- and a thoroughly good natured and likeable lady! Con Phillips
