Very interesting interviews with Lena. Our family lived next to Lena until 1964 at Chapel Haye, Burley. Well done for posting this.

Lena is so great - what fabulous stuff - especially fun to hear that "I don't have a car". Really? At 101 you don't have a car? And the funny thing is, I wouldn't be all that surprised if she did have one. SP
