'Lizzie' is taken away

It is a sad day today. This morning at 10.30am a man in a van came and took away our 'Lizzie'. She has been with us for many years. She never complains or minds the extremes of the weather as she welcomes people to the Jane Austen Centre day in, day out. The good news is that she will be back with us in about 4 weeks after her little 'holiday' and, like all of us, will return refreshed and renewed having been pampered, preened and painted by Gems Studio in London. Thought you might like this image of her braving the snow just after Christmas. Come back soon.
