 Edith Bell was my mother.  My parents moved here in 1939.  My father was Ken Bell who was a concert pianist and organist.  Edith Bell House was named after her.  She was a tireless worker in the community for many years before her death in 1985.  A district and parish councillor, she was also a founder of the Chalfont St. Peter Arts Festival which ran for some 40 years and unfortunately folded because of lack of help.  She founded the Misbourne Arts Society which still runs today. Was founder chairman of the Gravel Hill Managers and later Robertswood School.  She was also involved in the building of the Leisure Centre swimming pool, being a qualified swimming teacher herself. She was also a governor of Old Job's as it was known (now Chalfonts Community College).  Keenly interested in all aspects of village life and once stood for election as an independent (but did not get in) She believed that party politics should not come into local communities. There are many more things but I cannot remember them all.  In all this acitivity she did not neglect her home or her children in any way.

Is your other half Pat Reeves.  She lived next door to Edith Bell my mother for many years and was in fact one of my bridesmaids.   Where is Jose I have not seen her for a long time and usually bumped into her in Budgens.
