Margaret Audrey Drew (Lizzie)

Lizzie was born Margaret Audrey Bingham in Sheffield on 23rd July 1937 to Samuel and Gladys a younger sister to John. She was adventurous, strong-willed, refined, organised and, most of all, warm-hearted and kind. She started as an assistant stage manager at the Nottingham Playhouse before moving on to acting in rep in Sheffield. Then she followed her dream to be an air hostess and loved flying with BOAC for 6 years. When working for her brother in London arranging seminars she met her partner Bryn Drew, the building contractor working on her flat in Chiswick. Together they converted a Chiswick house into a successful 18 bed hotel. As the business grew and they handed over more of the day to day running they enjoyed a number of adventurous holidays organised to suit them both and enjoyed meeting up with family and friends and making the most of the whole cultural life of London. Lizzie died on the 23rd September 2020.
