My family knew her better as Betty Winch. Her mother had the shop Winch in the Harper Road
, almost next to Warrens the sweet shop. It was in the parade of shops between Joseph Lancaster School (now The Academy) and New Kent Road
. We would go into the shop to buy biscuits, which she seem to keep in tins and jars. Hope I got that right, I'm sure Jan will know. Close up, Betty was simply stunning. Her mother was an amiable character and stocked a few luxuries like Bev (or was it Camp) coffee. RIP, nice people to know.
