Palmers Green Tales visits Ruth Winston House

We visited Ruth Winston House last month and interviewed Jean Waller and Yvonne Quigley who told us about the courses run there.  It looks like a great place to be. Ruth Winston MBE was an energetic and forward thinking Mayor of Southgate and she set up RWH over 50 years ago.  It runs a huge variety of courses for over 50’s.



Palmers Green Tales and an interview with Jacques

Jacques talks about moving to Palmers Green in 1966 and how he started making films of the area in the late 1960’s.  We can see a compilation of some of his early films on the site.  Jacques explains how he copied some of his  films into new formats so we can see them today. It is lovely to see Broomfield House in the film.He talks about his early life as a Jewish child during the second world war in Paris and being hidden in Gargenville.  He was also based in Germany during the time of the Belin airlift completing his  French national service and working in air traffic control.
