    I have such wonderful memories of Mig. She will be greatly missed. I thoroughly enjoyed her company, which started on Fridays, quite a few years ago at the Brookmans, and then onto various suppers, and great barbecues. Always such fun. When I think of...  more

    We first met Mig in 1996 when we moved to Brookmans Park - we’d been neighbours for a matter of weeks but were invited to join NYE celebrations with Mig & Colin. No babysitter for our toddler? No problem, bring her and her travel cot! Such a warm...  more
