Gatley mourns two losses

Gatley has been rocked by two deaths recently.

First, the delightful co-owner of A&I Supplies, Irenee, sadly passed away. A fixture at A&I for many years, she was a familiar face to many Gatley residents and will be missed.

Irenee has been described as “lovely” by many on the Gatley Facebook page and always provided service with a smile. Irenee’s funeral was held on July 13th and our thoughts remain with the family.


Secondly, the tragic death of Ayesha Rahman was a shock to us all. Ayesha was knocked down by a suspected drug-driver on Gatley Road on Tuesday night and sustained fatal head injuries.

Ayesha was a former Kingsway School pupil and resident of Gatley and again, the thoughts and best wishes of all of us in Gatley are with her family and friends at this desperately sad time.
