Bertha Elizabeth Arnold, nee Marlow


OLD FOLK at a sheltered accommodation unit have a new colour television - thanks to a businessman and Kettering Round Table.

The anonymous businessman gave the television to Table chairman Richard Barlow for a worthy cause when he bought a new set. Tablers decided to present the set to the community room at Castle Gardens in Geddington.

Mrs Barlow handed over the set to warden Mrs Val Wood. The first viewer was the unit's oldest resident,95-year-old Mrs Bertha Arnold.

Mrs Wood said the set would replace a black and white set presented to the unit by the Tablers last year. She said the residents of the 20 self-contained flats in the unit were very grateful.

from: the Evening Telegraph 17th November 1981.


Bertha was the daughter of Henry Marlow and Harriett Letts.
