I met Daphne way back in 1987 when I bought a car from her partner Fred. Somehow this led to me working for them for many years, helping maintain their land and assisting with the many projects they undertook. Daphne was always on the go either with her markets, pottering around with her gardening or rallying around to help her daughters. With her straight talking, no nonsense approach you always knew where you stood with Daphne but there was always a caring, warm heart inside.
RIP Daphne x

Lovely memories of Auntie Daphne, especially working with her at Roman Road market and also lots of family fun at the Stone Caravan Park in Essex.

I only knew Daphne for the last 6 or 7 years from meeting her at the Evergreen Club on a Wednesday but she became a good friend and we spent many a good time on days out, at the garden centres or just having lunch or a coffee. Always wearing her red lipsitck and nails, I shall really miss her.

I met Daphne at Maidstone market and mentioned that she looked busy, she said I could start work the following week and I did! That chance comment was the beginning of a beautiful friendship and working relationship. My love of fabric still remains to this day. I look back on that period of my life with love and affection.
