ah, that's so sad Scoop. I thought she had a few more years yet. Sylvia was such an important part of the lives of all us Sixties kids. Another icon has left us. Both Andersons gone. RIP.
Sad news indeed Woodsy. Another important person that helped form the imagination of my childhood. I'll be preparing a more in depth post when I get in from work.
I always remember a trip to Pinewood Studio's in 2001 when a friend said we should just pop into this chalet like building, a few minutes later we were in Sylvia's office and she was asking me how many sugars I wanted in my drink in that very familiar voice. I just kept thinking 'Lady Penelope's serving me tea!'
A lovely story, thanks for sharing.She really did come across as a very genuine and popular lady. She will be sadly missed.
