Horley’s Dame Picks Her Favourite Desert Island Discs

Horley’s very special Dame, Glenys Kyle, (of Rowarth House opposite the church), appeared on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs on Sunday, choosing 8 of her favourite discs and 1 luxury item with which she would chose to be cast away.

It is an illuminating programme, where Glenys (who is publicly known as Dame Glenys Stacey) talks about various experiences of her life from childhood through 40 years of public service, where her last post was as her Majesty’s Chief Inspector of Probation.
