I’ve been going to the Isles of Scilly since I was about two and I was 70 this year. Every year we go to the islands, we have our photo taken on the corner in St Martins. My parents always had their photo taken there, then me and now my grandchildren and great grandchildren, so four generations now! It’s our favourite corner on the island.
I moved here 40 years ago with my husband’s job and stayed, we’re in the same house up by the blue bridge overlooking the railway. I’m involved in the community and I’m president of Penryn WI and chairman of Mabe garden club. There’s no other place like Penryn. I always say to visitors, when you walk you walk down the street. I always say, look up, every single rooftop is different. It’s a very old, ancient borough and it’s great when the architecture is preserved. We’re very lucky to live in a community.
