    1. Thanks June, that’s very helpful – I have a feeling that I’ve replied to you before but there are so many things to do …!
      Anyway, I hope it’s OK to put your information together on this website – Of course I’d say that it came from you.
      We used to know Jack, who lived up Church Street on the corner – a nice cheerful chap. It would have been him who told me at Addy, and it was a great pleasure meeting her, she seemed a very wise person.
      All the best, Janet
