    Hi! As I recall Beryl went on to Haringey ice rink where in 1948 she represented Britain in the Winter Olympics finishing 18th if I remember rightly. She spent many hours TRYING to teach me to Ice dance, at that time I played for the Junior Hockey team and captained the Whirlwinds. I'm now 80...Are you still around Beryl.
