10 – Zelda Sawyer

In this episode I talk to Zelda Sawyer of Dervaig.

Zelda, born in Australia and raised in England, has lived in the village for the last 40 odd years.

For many years Zelda ran a craft shop from her home on the main street of Dervaig.
She was also a key figure in the little theatre, running the box office from her front room, amongst other duties.

In this conversation we chat about her life here on Mull, her working life away, her family and childhood, memories of local artists, characters from the village and the glory days of Mull Little Theatre under the Hesketh family.

It was a delight to spend time with Zelda, who at the age of 90, has many stories to tell.
