Picture brings memories of ‘Jim’

Noelle Ranby-Holmes was pleased to see this picture of the Faldingworth WI visit to Wedgewood we printed recently as “seeing some of those familiar faces brings back memories of my childhood.”

Her great aunt Rowena Sturt is at the end of the second row on the right hand side. She was affectionately known as “Jim”, having been christened on the same day as a boy called Jim, whose parents insisted he was Jim and not James much to the surprise of the vicar. She was landlady of The Brownlow Arms Hotel along with her husband Charlie and later with her son Barry.
