No advance appointments to give her time to research, nothing like that. never got to see her myself, don't know if she's still around.
Avril Bray that was and her grandaughter Zara is still working as a medium.
Avril wasn't what you'd term a 'diplomatic' medium.
There's a tale told of a young couple who went to see her ( Avril charged a pound a head " and a bit o' silver for luck") after the wife's mother passed on.
Avril sits them down and says...
"He's playing away and so are thee lass."
