Women at sale walk out on LCC critic’. Romford Times, May 28, 1952.
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.
"Incensed by Lady Neave's comments some Harold Hill women 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
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.
