The happy dancer

IMG_6832

There’s a twinkle in Vivienne’s eyes every time she talks about her time as a dancer, “There were three of us. Two girlfriends and I and we used to dress alike and go sing and dance for the soldiers in their barracks.”

During her time as a dancer, Vivienne met her husband who was a British soldier. Together they had a long and happy marriage from which they had three children who now have given her many beautiful grandchildren.

Vivienne still stays in touch with her friends, including a fellow dancer who married an American soldier and now lives in America. She enjoys keeping receiving cards from her friends and reading.

Vivienne enjoys the privacy that Canwick House provides and likes spending time in her beautiful room with high ceilings and airy south-facing windows, overlooking the garden.
