Vera was a teacher at Moreton Secondary Modern School for some years before moving to the newly combined Chipping Campden Comprehensive School.
She became head of the RE department and was fully involved in the life of the school.
She participated in Sports Day – we think that she is in the sack race here.
In Newport Vera had met John Doran through their shared interest in amateur dramatics and they moved to Campden where John had a teaching post at St. Catharine’s School.
They raised four children – Rob, John, Andy and Keyna.
Vera also taught at St.Catharine’s School.
“She helped out at the Youth Club and the St. John Ambulance Brigade, and really cared for the children she taught, taking time for them out of school hours.”
