Untold stories of East Boldre

Elizabeth (Liz) was born in East Boldre in 1956 and has lived in the village for all of her life. She lived initially in Factory Cottages in Factory Lane. She attended Beaulieu School and went to the chapel with her grandmother. Her father worked in Hythe and her mother worked as a cleaner in the village hall for many years and also had a paper round.

Her grandparents (the Kitchers) lived at Fir Tree Cottage, where they kept animals, and her uncle Rol (Roland Kitcher) was particularly skilful with horses.
