Oh dear, a very sad day. I was taken into 'Annie's' as it was then, as a babe in arms, Annie being Elsie's mum. We used to pop in from time to time to see Elsie who had, in addition to friendships in the folk world at large, a great rapport with both Bob Copper and George Hamilton IV! I loved hearing her recount tales of local dances long ago where she often partnered my grandad whom she said was 'beautifully light on his feet' - unlike his grandson. I do hope the pub will carry on as a community-run establishment. It's amazing to think how remote and rural that part of Kent felt in the 50's, and whilst still beautiful, it is now home to some pretty prosperous commuters . With Elsie's parting, another link with those carefree childhood days has gone - rest in peace dear lady, you deserve it.
