I was not born in Brighton or Hove but having lived in this city since the age of three, I certainly feel that I was ‘bred’ here. How lucky I am that my parents decided to move to the seaside. Sometimes we take for granted the seafront, the surrounding countryside, the sporting venues, the amazing mix of shops and the fascinating history and buildings all around us. There is nowhere else like it and nowhere else I would rather live. In Memoriam: Freda Mainwaring 10th May 1922 – 27th May 2010 Sadly, Averil’s mother died several days ago, before she could see her daughter’s tour, so this section is dedicated to her memory.
