Georgia Hall’s story of her mother reminded me of my brief connection to Liz.
I was licensee of the Hallamshire Hotel on West Street in 1976 and interviewed Liz for a job as barmaid.
She made no secret of the fact she was a recovering alcoholic or that she had been fitted with an anti-alcohol implant.
Despite this, or maybe because of her honesty, I offered Liz a job. She soon became an asset, with her vivacious personality, reliability and ability to charm customers.
She was a trustworthy and popular member of staff who did not take a drink during the time I knew her. This coincides with Georgia’s recollection of when she was 11, a time when Liz often spoke of her love for her children.
It is sad to read that Liz did slip back and I would like to wish them both good luck for the future
