During an art and craft fair held at the Magpie Centre, home of West Norfolk Riding for the Disabled, volunteers were delighted to welcome Lesley Davies, née Palmer, whose photo, taken in 1979, forms an iconic part of the centre’s history.

Here, Lesley is holding a photograph of herself as a child, riding Magpie, the small black and white pony after whom the centre is named.
