Vivien Small – interview
One of our family celebrations was the annual Sproson party at the Bradmore hotel with all of the family. Frank Sproson, my father’s uncle, was married to Red Emma and used to organise the party. Red Emma was heavily involved in the suffragette movement. I can’t recall what we did at the parties – I imagine the children just waited around to be fed while the grown ups chatted about the olden days.
