Hazel always had pets ranging from a garden full of guinea pigs to many numerous cats and dogs over her long life. She ran an animal shed for the children of Hillbrook School, in Tooting, during her years as a teacher. She spent many happy hours bird-watching and she made many good friends while walking her dogs on Tooting Common. She spent lots of time being wheeled around Beddington Park to watch the waterfowl in her last year. She will sadly missed - not least by the foxes she encouraged into her garden!
