Anne Widdecombe’s photographs

In answer to “What is your most treasured possession?” Anne Widdecombe writes
“My family photograph albums. I am the only one remaining. I have lost my parents and my brother, so the photographs are the best remembrance of times past.” (Sunday Telegraph 170612 www.telegraph.co.uk )
With a nod to Marcel Proust, Miss Widdecombe shares the view of many Homesitters clients. Mostly, photographs are irreplaceable. Very few of us have the time or the money to scan every print and store the file somewhere safe. Many domestic insurance policies are excellent, but none can satisfactorily cover our items of sentimental or historic value – the photo albums, the lock of baby hair, the first “painting” brought back from nursery…
The solution, of course, is to make sure that your most treasured possessions are properly protected from fire, water damage and theft. Just one of the advantages of having a Homesitter.
Do bear us in mind, Miss Widdecombe, as your stage career develops. This year La Fille du Régiment; next year Beverley Hills?
