A Memory of Betty Bateman

2nd July 2020 | Letters

I was sad to hear of the passing of Betty when I read the article today (26 June) on the Chronicle’s website. Betty was my neighbour for a good couple of years, and as her obituary stated she was forthright in some opinions but we also had some good laughs as well.
