"So began a statewide search for the perfect place to land"
Early in the morning on the 26th May, 1946 the lightning & thunder shook the cottage in Dartmouth, Devon, England, the wolves howled & I was born. Mum saw that as some sort of omen which turned out to be true. I was destined to be different. My father even spelled my name incorrectly adding an extra ‘i’ to Sandra. The result was that I can never buy a mug or pen with my name already on.
Having a love/hate relationship with my elder brother resulted in many near death experiences. Once he force fed me some sort of glitter then sprinkled it all over the outside. Poor mum had to present this glittering toddler to the hospital. The first of many visits. Moving to London didn’t change my thirst for adventure & I nearly drowned in the Regents Park canal. I tried to ‘bunk’ into the London Zoo and was caught on a branch & left hanging by my knickers. My aforementioned brother decamped the scene. I had 2 other brothers & a sister who also managed to bring chaos into my life.
Much to everyone’s surprise, not least my teacher I passed the 11+ and progressed to High school. I must have developed my social conscience here because I spent more time standing outside the headmaster’s office than actually learning anything. It was usually for standing up against bullying by classmates or teachers. However some kindred spirits remain friends to this very day.
"I have always loved to dance"
I have always loved to dance.
It still makes me smile to remember when I was about 18, I used to be a Go-go Dancer with Milto and the Beat Girls. We travelled to other countries often (mainly Belgium and Germany) and we were treated like celebrities wherever we danced.
Even when I was a little girl growing up in the Netherlands, I have always been active. I have been working out in the Gym for the past 30 years and was so happy to be able to continue my workout right here at Bridgewater (free of charge too, no Gym Fees!). Since moving here
6 years ago, I have also taken up Tai Chi, Tap Dancing and Lawn Bowls. You wouldn’t believe what a workout Tap Dancing is, I just love it!
Living in the Village has also allowed me to indulge in my other passion with is art, painting and sketching (which I adore doing).
But my story starts last year in Barcelona, when I was sitting having a drink with my sister (who I had treated to a holiday) thinking about what I could do for the Annual Bridgewater Variety Show.
And I’m not sure if it was the Spanish air or the Rioja but I decided I was going to do a Pole Dancing Act as a comedy performance at the Show.
