Ethel went to DLM. I had a fire burning rose cuttings etc.
Ethel refers to my grandmother Ethel May Cecilia Parkin. DLM refers to Drayton Ladies’ Meeting, a women’s meeting she attended and organised at Drayton Methodist Church, see Chapter 107.
Grandad was an active gardener and he seemed to love a bonfire! This seemed to be his preferred way of disposing of garden rubbish, see Chapter 109.
