David Bellamy and friends


The year 1987 was not a good one for Jo and I – it was the year David died. But one event – possibly the only event that was memorable for good reasons – was most enjoyable. The opening of Pex Hill Visitor Centre in Knowsley. One of my roles at the time was being in charge of Public Relations for the Borough and whilst I usually avoided getting involved in publicity or mayoral events I made an exception in this case because the opening was done by David Bellamy. He was a real hero to Bryony and Helen and as they were members of the Borough’s Chrysalis Club I managed to get them a day off school to meet him.

The girls are pictured to the right of David in this article from the next day’s Liverpool Daily Post (April 15th).

With Helen on his left and Bryony on his right David Bellamy examines the insect life at Pex Hill with the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Eric Jones, looking on.
