Elizabeth Gentle - Ivy

Elizabeth lived in the village since she married in 1968, starting off in Bunyan Close and then living in Shillington Road. She was an active member of the Friends of St. Mary's and the Thursday Group. She coached the school netball team for eighteen years and was the Guide leader for many years after 1982 and was a member of Pirton Players.

Elizabeth’s comments:

“I chose ivy for my collage because it is a plant that grows in all situations, both cultivated and wild, and is lovely in all seasons throughout our village. I also find it useful for flower arranging.

I drew the leaves on paper first and then used them as a template and transferred them to the material. The rest was worked as I went along.

Pirton has proved to be a pleasant place to live and has been a good environment in which to bring up our children.”
