Jane Floweth, a much-loved Ilkley Literature Festival volunteer, has died in hospital after being critically injured in a car crash in Bradford.
For many years Jane was the support volunteer for Ilkley Young Writers group, giving up every Monday evening to help staff and teenagers at the sessions. She was much loved by the young people and workshop leaders and her quiet, thoughtful, support was very much appreciated. Jane also volunteered as a Steward at Festival events and regularly stopped into the office to share book and theatre recommendations- always interesting and welcome- with the team.
Jane will be much missed by the ILF family and wider Ilkley community. Our thoughts and sympathies are with Jane’s partner and her family at this difficult time.
