Hello one and all and welcome to my news page. Here you can see me as my two alter egos the ever efficient secretary
Prudie Jones, Evette the Spivette and plain old little me as you catch up with all that is current in my world. Regrettably

which might be shamefully mis-spelt. In the mean time I hope you find this page fun, entertaining and informative and become
a regular visitor to my site.

As for me it’s been business as usual as I continue to perform Battle of Britain WAAF shows all this week with just a few rescheduled performances due to the nature of events. My shows have been going down extremely well which might have something to do with the countries mood. After the sad passing of our monarch people have been looking for musical escapism and you can’t really go wrong with sing-along songs from the 1940s.
Busy doing Nothing on the Farm!
This weekend I should have been in France performing for the Liberation Ball at the Salle Victor Lorier in the town of Bretteville l’ Orgueilleuse. However due to a double booking the event has been rescheduled to the 22nd October and it was only by chance I was able to squeeze them in.

As a result I’m back in the recording studio this Sunday to pick up a revised new track of my 1920s Baby medley and I will also be catching up on paper work and prepping my costumes in time for my South coast tour.
