Mrs Pickles, better known as Nelly within her social circles, loves her arts and crafts when she is not helping Mr Pickles in the kitchen developing his chutneys and relishes. She is proper proud of Walter and all he has achieved, when she takes his products t’ sample at the WI or her ‘Knit and Natter’ group.

Getting to know Nelly was lovely as we asked her a few questions.
