The plate is all my loves in Penryn through the years starting with my flowers and insects. I used to work as an auxiliary (teaching assistant) in the late 70’s. I was at the infant school on the Terrace where Audierne is now. This is how we used to draw insects and flowers for the children.
It also shows my love of the Penryn Methodist Church which I’ve been connected with all my life. I was caretaker for 34 years and I lived next door on the Terrace for 17 years. And of course the love of my family, my late husband Roy who we lost 19 year ago, my son Mark and my daughter in law Carol and my grandchildren Kieran and Bethany. Mainly it is my real love for Penryn and the people.
I’ve lived in Penryn my whole life: born on West Street, when I got married I moved to St Gluvias Street for 20 years, then the Terrance for 17 years and just before Roy died we moved to Saracen Way. I’ve been there ever since, and there I’ll stay I think. I’m delighted to be part of the project and I really enjoyed the workshop.
