I have so many fond memories of  Mrs. Richards not least her laugh.
She was a very talented seamstress and made some super clothes for Wenda and Carol.
She took part in amateur dramatics in Ilminster and no doubt made many of the costumes.
A long and happy life. R I P .

We have lost another of our Summervale family.

I received this email today from Doreen Powell

Hi Jean,
It's Doreen (Powell )
Are you still updated the Summervale Blog?
I have some sad news. Although not many remembered my brother Alan Powell, I have to inform you he passed away on New Years Eve 2014.
He was suffering from Motor Neuron Decease, although he was not expected to die so soon.
If you would like to pass this on.
I hope all is well with all the Summervale people.
Many thanks.

I have not heard from anyone for many months, does anyone look in any more?
I am more than happy to keep it going but since the reunion everyone has lost interest. Such a shame.
