Virginia Morton - Ducks

I have lived in Pirton since 1960. I came from Lancashire when I was married. I first lived in Royal Oak Lane and now live opposite the pond.

I wanted to do a design incorporating ducks, because living opposite the village pond I am known to my grandchildren as "Granny Ducks."

The design was taken from "A Sketchbook of Birds" by C.F. Tunnicliffe R.A.

Both my sons were born in the house in Royal Oak Lane, just two of the 1,000 babies delivered by Nurse Baldwin during her time as a midwife. My sons both attended Pirton School.

I was on the Parochial Church Council and have been a member of the Parish Council. I am deputy chairman of the Friends of St. Mary's and a committee member of the Bury Trust and the John Hammond Charity.
