So firstly many apologises for not having updated my blog, sorry forgive me.

Life at Fletchers & personally been very busy, having been looking after my dear Mum through breast cancer, but great news she has made a full & speedy recovery, after successful surgery & follow up treatment. Love you mum xxx

Recently one of dearest customer passed away, Fredrick Lees, so has been a sad time, for his family, us at Fletchers & a huge loss to Rye. He will always have a part in our life's. Sadly missed here at Fletchers. Always a different story from Freddie about his vey colourful life, every time he came to see us.

We send our love to Fletchers Grandma, Edna who took a very bad fall at home, she has been in Hospital for nearly 5 weeks, but due home very very soon. Edna was the first person i met when i moved to Rye 6 years ago now. come home soon darling we all miss you xxxx.

The Summer has been great, but hard work as always. So a big thank you from Pete & myself to all our staff who made this another successful summer.

Will also be closing near the end of the month for our Annual holiday. I will update the blog by the end of week, with the date were closed.

She went to the School of Art at the Polytechnic, Regent Street, then in 1946 to the Institute of Education as a qualified Art Teacher, an ability to make things, she became enthusiastic & energetic member of the Schools Art Departments, particularly enjoying costume designing & prop making for the school play productions.
In the Advertising department of Bayer Pharmaceuticals she was responsible for the art work & exhibition designs for the ethical products, as well as press ads, for home & overseas publications. In due course Valerie moved to a Law publishers, producing similar publicity work & hob-nobbing with the legal profession in Chancery Lane.

Valerie in her earlier years, was keen yachtswoman. With here first husband she often sailed to France & the Channel Islands in there very small boat. Later crewing with different yacht owners seemed more hazarduous than surviving channels gales in her own boat.
