Jessie joined a Dance Group called Clayton-Jackie-Rona(Jessie) touring and performing around the Country also.
Jessie once belonged a dance theatre group who also had The George Cole as a member.
Jessie appeared around the Country appearing in a dance group which appeared in The White Horse inn - in 1939, where Little Jessie Nevin did a Speciality Dance - with the Boys and Girls.
Also appearing in the White Horse Inn was a young Lady called - Gretchen Franklin (Ethel in Eastenders).
My MIL was doing real well and knew a few famous folk.
(click the photo - of the White Horse Inn and see if you know any more folk that appeared with her.)
Jessie Joined a Ballroom Dance club and danced her way through the certificates to reach the Gold awards.
1967 jessie and her DH won a dance competition at Butlins for the News of the World Newspaper.
After Jessies DH died, she joined many groups in Canvey from Flower arranging - dancing and many more
also made lots of friends and was popular where-ever she went.
Jessie started to go on Cruises with friends and also with a Dance Group.
The Lady (one of the leaders of the dance group) appeared on the TV program called The Chase not so long ago.
Jessie took a very large suitcase and many bags with her on the cruises, with many outfits, this photo shows just one outfit.
