In this fascinating note she recounts her time as Pilton's May Queen, maypole dancing on Pilton House lawn, being a bridesmaid at the wedding of her aunt, Janet Gratton to Richard Day in 1965, and her trip back to Pilton for the first time after 20 years. She is now Susan Houston and lives in New Zealand.
