Former Hardwick School Teacher receives an MBE

I met Mrs Edith Timm (nee Francis) on board RMS St Helena sailing from Cape Town to St Helena. Edith was returning from London having received her MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for 2012. She taught in Stockton for some years in the 1960s at Hardwick School.  Later she was Principal of the Prince Andrew School on her native St Helena.  Maybe some former pupils remember her…
