This girl followed The Beatles from Jan 1963 right up to the split in 1970 I have a huge quantity of what she collected even going to McCartney concerts in 1989.
In the amount of mail received by the fan club was a surge.
It was getting too much for Bobby Brown, so Brian assigned her the help of NEMS Enterprises typist Freda Kelly, this keen, 17 years old Cavernite - efficient, helpful and a friend to all - didn't need asking twice and happily immersed herself in the challenge.
Braian also made a surprising and farsighted move by allowing the creation of a second club purely to serve Beatles fans in the south of England - it was an empty vessel he didn't expect to stay empty for long.
The idea was kinded by Bettina Rose, an 18 years old from Richmond, south-west of London, who heard "Love Me Do" on Radio Luxembourg and wrote to EMI volunteering her services to the Beatles.
She met Brian in London in mid-December 1962 and they decided to go ahead with the new venture.
Never slow to put plans into practice, Brian defined the club's adjunct structure, agreed to shoulder its costs, and mailed the NME a new classified ad for The Beatles Fan Club (Southern Branch) to run in the first issue of the year.
