I went to a talk this evening about the Greenham Common women. It was fascinating, illuminating and moving. There were several women in the audience who had been there and were able to add their own perspective to the discussion. If you want to read more you can find some information here.
Rebecca Mordan has been researching the history of the women by collecting stories from those who were there and creating an archive of memorabilia and personal stories. It will be a treasure house of information.
One of the women present was wearing a beautiful pair of shoes which she was happy for me to photograph. When I asked where she had bought them, she told me that they had been hand made for her as a birthday present. Aren’t they beautiful?
The other stalls around were delightful – next door to me a cake stall with gorgeously decorated small cakes and some delightful biscuits, made by Pink Peach Cake Co.
‘Love Betty’ was across the way and a lovely young woman, a student at Falmouth University, bought a coat that suited her so very well.
Our friends showed us some beautiful old glasses with a flower at the bottom. The effect of the cut glass makes a kaleidoscope effect which is absolutely lovely.
