A Pepper Dance
For some years, we used to be part of the St Peter’s Village History Tour as the Cramp family – the first minister to preach in the building that is now our Baptist Church. See this picture to read more.
Anyway, those involved with the Village Tour people had a social evening and some of us provided some entertainment.
My parents and I got ourselves dressed up as sand dancers, or in our case… pepper dancers! We were parodying that well known old trio, Wilson, Kepple & Betty – we called ourselves Wotsup, Ketchup and Letty Green!
Dad was a snake charmer (hence the sock puppet) and, somehow, they managed to talk me into being the belly dancer – with coconut shells stuffed down my shirt!
