Romford Times 18-12-1946
Women at sale walk out on LCC critic. Romford Times, May 28, 1952.
Several Harold Hill women who walked out of a church sale at Noak Hill
on Thursday, told the Romford Times that they left because they objected
to remarks made by Dorina Lady Neave about
the mansion where she had lived which had been demolished to make way
for the London County Council estate.
Left without buying
Some of the women walked out there and then, not waiting to see Romford's new Mayor, Alderman G. Roberts, open the event. It was his first public meeting function since becoming the Mayor the previous night. Some others waited until the end of the formalities and then left. None of them brought articles from the stalls.
Queen Mary's Gifts
Among the articles sold at the sale were several sent as gifts to Queen
Mary, including china ware and a miniature doll. All fetched good prices.
