It is with sadness we hear of the death of Enid Clarke on Sunday 27th September 2020 , aged 100 years.
Enid moved to Carbrooke at the age of 3 months , with her parents Cecil and Winifred in 1920. The family ran the village shop in Church street, before moving to 'Striped Cottage' in Broadmoor Road, and later to 'The Post Office' on Shipdham Lane, where they ran the Post Office until 1980's.Enid reached the amazing milestone of 100 years, and was Carbrooke's oldest resident. Last April, Carbrooke Heritage Group, were privileged to celebrate with the Smith family, at a family reunion.
Enid married 'Jack' Clarke and had two sons, Paul and John. She was involved in all aspects of Carbrooke throughout her life, attending the village school, and church, and being involved with the social life in Carbrooke. She was a talented artist, and had several pieces of work displayed in London galleries. She specialised in miniatures, and some of us have the honour of owning one, as they were donated as raffle prizes for village events.
Enid had a great pride in her village, and was a wealth of information, for the heritage group, often lending photos and items for our archives.
She will be greatly missed, and we send our condolences to her family and friends.
