    Saw the name Felicity Stafford which brought back memories of holidays at Mrs Staffords guest house in 1962 and 63 and her sister, Mrs Horsley’s, guest house in 1960. Remember seeing Felicity quite a few times, including at her job in a local department store, and note that she is still in Margate. Fond memories of long ago!!
