When the wounds had healed she found new vitality in her work for the Congregational Church, and at 68 became the oldest woman in Britain to be ordained. Now 81, she is still preaching.

Tony Brown, seeded No 5, perhaps not on his best form this season, could be struggling in his first-round match against the North American Open Champion, John Kramer from the USA.
The second match this evening features the 'man on form', Jocky Wilson - the present Bullseye - and British Professional Champion and Scottish No 1. His first-round opponent is Scottish captain Rab Smith, who, on form, is capable of causing an upset.
Peter Purves introduces highlights of both contests from Jollees Club, Stoke-on-Trent, together with the results of:
Gordon Allpress (New Zealand) v Ceri Morgan (Wales)
Alan Evans (Wales) v Robert Sinnaeve (Canada)
