Peggy was the eldest daughter of George and Nellie Swain and lived and worked in Bourne all her life. Many people will remember her when she worked at Bourne Health Centre, where she worked for 15 years, retiring reluctantly at the age of 70.
On her retirement she became involved in many local clubs including Bourne Flower and Garden Clubs; women’s section of the British Legion and Bourne Twinning Association. She was also an avid helper at the Monday Luncheon Club. Peggy loved to get involved in Nellie Sanders’ fundraising lunches, where she was known as the ‘raffle queen’. Peggy quietly did her own charity work all her life, helping anyone who was in need.
