Kalkan lover Pamela Bassett dies aged 68

Pam BassettIt is with great sadness that we report the death of Kalkan fan Pam Bassett who passed away on Monday 7th May following a short illness.  She was 68 years old.

Pam lived with husband Ian in Minster on the Isle of Sheppey.  They bought their Kalkan home in 2001 and were regular visitors, spending several months of the year in Kalkan including most Christmases and New Years.

They made a great many friends in Kalkan over the years.  Pam was a great KAPSA supporter and a lover of cats - Persians in particular.  She often helped with feeding many of the street dogs and cats.

Her daughter Sasha told us, “One of the fondest memories I have is when a cat gave birth to 5 kittens in a flower pot.  Mum fed them all and they have never left.  They are known as ‘the flower pot five’.”

Sally GeorgeIt is with immense sadness that we report the death of Kalkan resident Sally George who passed away peacefully at St Catherine’s Hospice in Crawley in the early hours of Friday 15th December following a long period of illness.  She was 64 years old.

Sally leaves behind her wonderful mother Ann, her two loving sons Max and Mark, daughter in law Sarah, and grandchildren Jasper and Ryder whom she adored.

She first visited Kalkan with her mother many years ago, long before Kalkan was as popular as it is now.  It is a place that was destined to become her home both in a literal sense and also spiritually.
