May Young,

'I used to live at the top of Northumberland Street but I also lived in Heriot'. When asked where she preferred to live, without hesitation she told me, 'Heriot'.

May moved to Tapanui after her husband passed away, and has worked at the old hospital assisting in anyway possible. Later she became a self-taught chef and worked part-time in the kitchen at Forest Lodge, and also cooked for the fish and chip shop that was where Top Nosh Cafe is today.
