Some of the badges on the plate are from when I was in the Metropolitan Women Police, which no longer exists. This was 1956 to 1969. I had a great time. At the Odeon in Walthamstow in the 60’s, I was on stage with the Beatles keeping others off. There were so many people that the band had to climb ladders between people’s gardens just to get to the venue. In Leicester Square Odeon, Marilyn Monroe was at the premier of War of Peace with her husband Arthur Miller. I had to usher her in and when I touched her dress it was like a second skin, green sequined and so smooth. Another badge represents the WI and one is Windsor Castle where I’m a life member. Most important of all, I’ve included my `little rescue dog Sophie who walked me every day through the Covid lock down.
I’ve lived in Penryn for 35 years, since 1986. My brother lived in Falmouth and we used to come down on holidays and just loved it down here.
