Nana gave birth to four children whilst owning the pub. The eldest child was from her marriage with “Bill” Corré, and was born in 1918, her name was Sadie Corré and she died on the 26th of August this year aged 91. She was a ‘little person’ and had spent her life on the stage and in movies. If you have ever seen “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” then you have seen her, she was the smallest Transylvanian. She was an Ewok in ‘Star Wars’, the slave master in ‘Dark Crystal’ and there was a long, long list of other movies. She was also a famous pantomime cat and she was with Sir Norman Wisdom at the London Palladium in “Turn again Whittington” in the 60’s. - much of this information comes from the Guardian and written by Glen Barham. ***
