Nearly everyone in Daventry knows about legendary character Christina (Tina) Margaret Winter who would regularly been seen around town, smoking her clay pipe or riding on her bright pink motorcycle (appropriately nicknamed “Pink Panther”). An integral member of the community, Tina left a suitcase packed with diaries that span decades of personal notes and commentary, including newspaper clippings and memorable jokes. As well as her written accounts, Tina created a number of portraits of local people: wooly dolls affectionately called her ‘little folk’.
