Kitty Timmins

Posted By dreamersfolk on May 5, 2020


It is with great sadness that we have to communicate to you the passing of our lovely friend Catherine ( kitty ) Timmins this morning at Treliske Hospital in Truro. Kitty had been ill for some time and although we are very sad, we are comforted to know that she did not suffer unduly over a prolonged period of time.

She was always the life & soul of the party, her boundless energy and enthusiasm were infectious. With her husband Niall, she ran Dreamers Folk for many years, introducing us to many wonderful performers over the years and taking us on a journey from the Smugglers Inn at St.Erth Praze to Wheal Dream at Helston and finally to our current home at the Sportsmans Arms in Four Lanes.

With Kitty at the door of the folk club, you were assured of a beaming smile and a welcome like no other. Belying her years she sang and danced with the energy of a much younger woman and was largely responsible for the success of the local Appalachian dance group “Appal Pie”.

Kitty will be missed by all who knew her, but she has left us a veritable treasure trove of wonderful memories of happy times. Adieu lovely Kitty.x
