Geraldine Norris (nee Green) emailed us from Australia in connection with the artist Will Maile and her parents, Bert and Clarice.
She writes :- “I was born in Benfleet in 1948 on the houseboat Veronica , which was moored in Church Creek. My parents Bert and Clarice Green were very active at St Mary’s Church – my dad was church warden and cub akela and mum taught Sunday school and was Brown Owl of the Brownies pack. They were also active in the church dramatic society. When my parents left Benfleet in 1970 to move to Rhodesia, they were presented with an oil painting of the church, the painter was Will Maile (see Art and Artists ). I still have the painting in my home on the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.”
