Seventy years of volunteering for Sidmouth duo
Sidmouth Voluntary Services coffee making volunteers say farewell to Twyford House
A FOND farewell from Sidmouth Voluntary Services this week to two of its volunteers, who between them have given more than 70 years service making coffee once a week at Twyford House.
Dorothy Jackson and Gladys Craven, were presented with flowers and tokens in recognition of their dedication by SVS chairman, Hilary Hatherley, warden Lesley West and one of the centre’s cooks, Ann McCabe.
Dorothy (pictured front left) started making coffees as a member of the British Legion when the Coburg Road centre first started in 1964.
Her late husband Larry joined her when he retired and they stood in as relief wardens when the regular warden was on holiday.

Hilary said: “Dorothy and Gladys carried on the tradition when the British Legion had to withdraw and have been keen supporters ever since.”
