The late Claire Rayner was an notable icon in Britain. As well as being a journalist, nurse, broadcaster, and novelist, she was also a resident of Harrow-on-the-Hill. She led many successful campaigns and was a prolific figure in the Sexual Revolution of the mid-century, being at the forefront of the development of sex education in the UK. She worked as an agony aunt for most of her life; the first who brought professional knowledge and attitude to the role, and always willing to take on causes that no one else was prepared to touch!

We’re delighted that as part of our exhibition Opening Out: Womens’ Lives in Harrow 1970 – 2000, we are able to host a Q&A session with Claire’s daughter, Amanda Rayner. Hosted by the Women in Harrow History Group, this is a rare chance to get up, close and personal with Amanda and learn more about her Mother, Claire Rayner.

Amanda is also a notable author herself, publishing three novels in total, ‘An Accidental Daughter’ ,’ Some Mother’s Child’ and ‘The Barbed Wire Tree’.
