Emily Medforth's 90th Birthday Party
  The photos below show Emily Medforth on the occasion of her 90th birthday in 1991.
She was the headmistress of Withernwick School from 1931 to 1963 i.e 32 years.
She is therefore a very significant character in the history of our village.

Emily was born in Patrington as Emily Mowforth in 1901.  She married Albert Medforth in 1922,
Albert became Captain of the Withernwick Home Guard platoon - click here.
