Here she is about to have a special good-bye tea-party. We will all miss her as she did so much more than just play the piano.  I wonder how many hooks she has sewn on to character skirts or elastics on to shoes?  We all send her much love and thanks for her beautiful music and her extraordinary kindness over the years.  She will be hard to replace and very greatly missed.  Yvonne is moving to Derbyshire with her husband. We have sent her off with lots of pink-handled gardening tools and hope that they will remind her of ballet at Francis Holland and that she will keep in touch.
