Sad Passing of Monique Hayles

It is with great sadness that the British Dragon Association announces the passing of Monique Hayles late last week.

Monique made a huge contribution to the class over many decades and will be sorely missed. Our deepest sympathies are with Mike, family and friends at this time.

Funeral Arrangements

Venue: Cam Valley Crematorium, Great Chesterford
Date: Friday 6th December
Time: Midday

This loss is being felt by Dragon fleets all over the world as mentioned by IDA Chairman Jens Rathsack; “She will be missed most sorely by Mike, and by her family and close friends, but also by the wider Dragon family. Monique and Mike were an inseparable couple who competed actively at the highest level on the Dragon circuit for many years.”
