Nine months after the unexpected death of former leader of Mellor Brook’s Beavers and Cub Scouts, the Community Centre has honoured her memory by displaying a permanent memorial in the form of a painting. Susan died following a short illness on 17th November 2021. She was 76. She was made “Akela” of Mellor Brook Cub Scouts in 1984 before stepping up to become Group Scout Leader. She was a member of the volunteer management group administering the affairs of Mellor Brook Community Centre and one of its trustees. A short ceremony took place on Wednesday 31 August when members of her immediate family were present. Husband Brian unveiled a still life picture painted by Susan and bearing the legend “Painting by ‘Akela’ Sue Middlemas, displayed here to commemorate her service to Mellor Brook & District Scouts from 1980 to 2021 during which time she also served the Community Centre as a member of its volunteer management team”
