When I first interviewed Joan Peel in 2019 I found a bright articulate 88-year old with a great sense of humour. When we caught up on the phone two years later she hadn’t changed a bit.
Born in 1931 Joan has interesting stories of her school days during WW2 and teenage years just after the war. She left school and started work at 14 and it was as hard as you would imagine - being at school one minute and the next being a young tailor with the highest of standards of work expected of you.
Joan has a lovely sense of humour - when I asked her if it was love at first sight when she met her husband Owen at a dance her answer was: “It was for him”.
A very easy chat to listen to.
