TODAY: SHIRLEY HARMAN
Paul Furey talks with a Feckenham lady who was born in
Wales, had a multinational upbringing, met The Beatles,
danced with The Rolling Stones, kept goats, appeared in

retired vampirish money man might complete the picture….

retirement flat. Buyer beware or ‘just the ticket’?
When two well-known Feckenham couples decided to move out
and buy a flat in a retirement village, we wanted to investigate
