Gladys Taafe And The Hairy Bikers
The Hairy Bikers mission in their new programme is to promote and improve Meals on Wheels. As part of their understanding of how the service was set up in 1945, they investigated the early days. Gladys delivered Meals on Wheels for 50 years, retiring when she was 95, so the Hairy Bikers decided to cook and deliver her one of the early meals which consisted of an oatmeal and corn beef steamed pudding and an eggless sponge. Gladys found this very tasty but not as hot as she would have liked as it had travelled from Welwyn Garden City. Prior to her meeting with Si and Dave, Gladys had not heard of the Hairy Bikers but she found them extremely charming and enjoyed their visit.
