Derek Gibbons continues his series of chats with local “celebs”, talking about their lives, showing their photos, playing their favourite music. This month’s guest is Vicki Shakeshaft.
Vicki travelled with her parents for the first thirteen years of her life, the family following her father’s postings to Northern Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall and Malta. In this time she changed schools eleven times eventually ‘settling’ to secondary education in Northampton for five years before arriving at Bletchley Park, by chance, in 1970 to train as a teacher. At the time she did not know that her aunt had been recruited to Bletchley Park in WW2 and that her grandmother was a servant at Sir Herbert Leon’s mansion, also in Bletchley Park, before WW1. Since Vicki settled in Stony Stratford in 1978 she has been involved in arts, music and community projects in the town and across Milton Keynes.
