Who amongst us remembers the popular 1970s music show Lift Off With Ayshea? Screened weekdays on ITV just before teatime it introduced many of us under tens to the excitement of Glam rock, to Bolan, Bowie & Ken Dodd and to the allure of big hair and sideburns. How many of us yearned to wear full make-up and flares to school just like woodwork teacher Mr Stanner? I’ve found a picture of Ayshea (from the days when she lived in Beckworth) but couldn’t help wondering where she is now? If you know let us know! Thanks, Bill Christchurch.
