Growing up

"I am the third of nine children, and I was born in Trinidad. My dad was a farmer and also a mason, and he built houses and farmed. My father's name was Beaten Bell, that was his nickname.

My mum didn't go to work, but would work on the farm, working and planting things. We would rear cattle and sell the milk. We grew many things, like yam and sweet potatoes and corn, many West Indian things. This is how he got the money, and how we lived until we came to England in 1957."
