Gladys Taaffe

2nd of March 2006

50 years ago, Gladys Taaffe helped to start the Meals on Wheels service in what was then the developing ‘new town’ of Hemel Hempstead. Ever since then she has been delivering meals to elderly and housebound people living in the villages of Chipperfield, Bovingdon, Felden and Flaunden.
Gladys has just turned 95 years of age, and reluctantly feels that the time has come when she can no longer undertake
the driving involved. She says she has thoroughly enjoyed her time with the Meals on Wheels service and we know that both her colleagues in Hemel and the many people who have received the meals over the years, are very sad to see her go.
New volunteers are desperately needed for our area (particularly on Fridays). If you feel you could help deliver meals for even one or two days each month, please contact the Meals on Wheels office on 01442 228085. Mileage is paid from your home and back again, and the time involved is a maximum of 2 hours each day. Please help if you can.
