Anybody have any info on Evelyn Hayward? Is she still in Compton? I meet her again when I was about eighteen; I used to babysit her first born child, I think she was named Pippa.

I remember singing in the church choir, Evelyn Hayward was in it and I remember her telling me to sing higher, then telling me to come back down again. I didn't stay in it for long, can't remember why. I also remember the Rev Ian Paisley, a short grey haired man with a very loud voice.
