Vivien Eva Chanter 1914-2007

My mother, pictured above, on one of her several trips to Africa, passed away on this day (19th March) in 2007 age 93. Had she lived she would have turned 99 by now. Just imagine!

It really doesn’t matter how old you are, it is very hard to get over the death of a parent, and you’d be surprised how often she springs to my mind. Actually you wouldn’t if you knew that thanks mainly to her, we were able to install a generator at Chanters Lodge in 2007, and given the number of power cuts of late one obviously thinks of her rather often! In fact every time I go to switch on the generator! Now that’s powerful!

May her soul rest in peace.
