Newspaper Article 1987 – Our Super Melva!

Our Super Melva!

A recent birthday means Melva Mildenhall qualifies for super. We already knew that Melva was a super person, who mixed with a special class of person. Bill Craig took this birthday photo of Melva, who wanted to send copies of the picture to some of her friends, but Bill couldn’t find the negatives for a short time. He had filed them with negatives of British TV star John (Are You being Served) Inman.

We now know the class of person Melva likes to keep company with.
